when is it time to hunt a new bear?

You made a comment on the butcher and the meat scraps... if the butcher's a nice enough guy, you might say: "well if you can't GIVE me any meat scraps... where do you through them out?" If he doesn't lock his dumpster, you might have to suffer a little humiliation trash digging, but if you get meat scraps... also - check McDonalds - they through out TONS of red lamp food.

when is it time to hunt a new bear?

I live about a mile from a custom meat cutter here in Idaho and he gives away scrap meat and even lets you use his barrels as long as you bring them back. Shoot he even uses his forklift to load them for you.
As for the smell. The worst it is the better. I had meat on my bait pile for about 2 weeks as I haul in about 110 gallons of meat scraps to my bait. It makes a long day though. Make sure if you do get scraps make sure your not putting bones out if you can help it. Because the bears will haul off the bones and chew on them till dark. Have found that out the hard way. Bears will eat the most rotten stuff you have ever seen. My son wont go to the bait pile after about a week of it being there. I cant smell so I am the lucky one.LOL
Good luck and happy hunting. Kill all the bears you can as they eat our other game.

Atom is right though they do have to pay to have it hauled off. My meat cutter usually has about 10 -15 55 gallon barrells a day and when bear season is here he gets rid of it fast. All the hound hunters go to him to get there bait.

Yes I met him threw a mutual friend so I get all I want from him. He tries to get me stuff without bones. A great guy. Only thing is he hasn't been at the shop so dont know what i will get this week from him. He drew a bighorn sheep tag so has spent alot of time out scouting and I believe his hunt opened now.
