Bear season officially ends this week for me (Nov 28 for those who wish to still hunt them) I went out a couple of times and while this happened, I did not fill my tag this year. Luckily, I have a decent amount of bear meat left from last season so I will be in good shape for a bear roast when its -10 and snowing.
Again, I helped Steve with a couple of bait sites and I wanted to post what our sites looked like. He knows I took these pictures, so while I won't tell you where they are or what sort of secret ingredients we used, I can show you the basic set up.
Anatomy of a bait site (from left to right):
1. Deer hind quarter tied to a tree
2. Milk crate with sweets
3. 55 gallon drum filled with assorted donuts
4. Milk crate with disgusting beaver parts
Over the course of the season, we had bears who preferred the sweets and those who preferred checking out the meats. When you think about it, bears eat some pretty gross stuff but boy is bear meat delicious!
