Black Bear Bait
If you are like most of us you don't have a limitless supply of freebie Twinkies or sticky buns so you have to put out the cash for bait. Try popcorn it's usually cheaper than dog food and way lighter to pack in. When you pop it don't use an air popper do it the old fashion way with a pot on the stove, I use an old canner. Pop it in an aromatic oil or shortening, the butter flavored stuff or bacon grease. If you want to help dress it up some more melt your grease first then add some good strong eye watering chopped onions to the hot grease and let them fry for a while before you add the popcorn.
