Re: Black Bear hunting!
I went to AK with afriend who bow hunted it for bears for about 15 yrs.He used to keep a "stink" barrel,beavers,fish guts, all rotten. We would fill 1/2 gal milk jugs and pour at bait areas. Bait we collected at local bread and treat outlet, old twinkies,brownies,donuts, pies, etc free.We would unwrap all,then trash compact. This gave you small.but heavier package, we packed bait up or shipped also.Takes alot for 3-6 guys.baited in barrels w/small hole so they had to work at it. Some spots 6 bears hit , others zero, Camp took B&C bear almost every year.Average bear was P&Y. Also would by bulk liguid smoke in bottle,spray bottle. spray trees and trail on way in, very affective. The stink barrel made on of my buddies hurl, he couldnt handle it
