|A truck full of bait ready to go|
At least two different bears had come in to check the bait. The 55 gallon drum that is hung up with cables is about three feet off the ground. Any bear whose back is at least that tall, is a shootable bear.
We modified the 55 gallon drum so that it was a little more stable, refilled it and refilled the two milk crates that are hanging on either side of the drum. We put the memory card back into the trail camera and headed to Site 1 to see if we had had any hits there.
The new site 1 is a little further in the woods that it was last year but there were plenty of bear sign around! Including this fresh pile that was filled with apples. None of the bait from the barrel had been taken but it was clear that there were bears around.
|Steve's boot is sized 14|
Two sites and two successful hits from local bears. We have one week until the season opens and hopefully, there will be a few bears taken this fall!
