Bear Scent & Lure

Here's a question for you serious bear hunters out there: What lures & scents have you had your best success with? I'm not talking one or two bears, but 5 or more and year after year consistant results?

Re: Bear Scent & Lure

Good question. I live in Washington state and here it is not legal to bait bear or cougar, although scents are a different story I believe.

Don't think honey-burns are legal either.

Any scents, not baits, that work well out there?

I don't know how to spell it but the stuff that they put in propane to make it smell works pretty good. Ether macaptain???? Something like that anyway.

Sun ripened and aged beaver castors........

Nothing more effective other than a female bear in heat.

Bear Scent & Lure

We use anise (the confectioners scent added to black licorice).
It's available in liquid form that works well in a squirt bottle.
Also liquid smoke.
Another trick is to pull a can of bacon grease up a tree and tip it over so it runs down the tree trunk.
All of these scents linger in the air for a while.
If there's a bear within a mile or so (and he doesn't smell you) he'll come around.

Re: Bear Scent & Lure

Bacon grease burn or poping corn works very good too.

Lots of sent in the air..

Smells better than ripened Beaver castors.
