Bear baiting

Postby Lefty » 05 21, 2020 •  [Post 1]

Kind of a hobby more than a hunt for us
A little getaway and a chance to see spring game animals
In April we set 800 lbs of beef scrape the deep snow stopped us from going too high
All of that bait was gone in days

Then 10 days back we baited , 6 days later not a hit
Then this location 250 lbs of meat gone in two nights
I was excited to see what and who were at the bait site
I don’t know what I did with the SD card

Come on out.
I can line you up on bait, lend you barrels and give you some locations. If you show up tomorrow Ill put you on that bait.
