SEE BLACKIE AND PORKA (I'm going to try this)

hey blackie, u can install the cam on the good trail u found

did u start working on the trail since u found a good spot for ur crib ?
when u r finally allowed to bait u should have plenty of food available specially the first week of baiting , cause we don't know how many bears live in the area, also u only need to bait once a week , twice or three time a week will not help u or increase ur chances of tagging the bear, once a week baiting is good as long u keep plenty of bait to last to the next trip , once a week baiting also help keeping the area and bears in peace .
how much is too much ? well the more bait the better specially in a fall hunt, once we start baiting i will tell u in details what u need to do .

u said u have found a good area for the crib, describe this area for me and tell me why u like it .

there is no doubt that hard work and determination play a big part in ur success of tagging a bear at a bitsite, don't let that discourage u !

the more remote the area the better the chances of tagging ur bear.. check out the picture below to see what i go thru in one of my bear baitsite !

u want success.. u have to work hard for it !

There's no set way of doing something. I start my baits about 6 weeks before the guys come in to hunt them. After 3 or 4 weeks, the animals trails are well established and now you can figure out exactly where you want your stand to go. For this reason, start your bait right at the crib. Let them set their routes in and out of the site. Then, as soon as you can, get your stand set up whether it be a ladder stand or one using tree steps. While the self-climbers are great, they aren't a first choice for bear hunting as you either have to carry them out with you every nite or leave them to be demolished by bears when you're not there.
Something else to consider. When setting up a stand my least concern is wind direction. Traditionally, the hunt is an evening thing and winds are generally calm by then. The only way to really establish wind direction is visit the stand during the hours you'll be hunting and decide from there. If you set up your stand during mid day, prevailing winds at that time will likely be different than the light winds experienced as the evening cools. My preference is almost always to set up with the setting sun at your back when possible.
