Re: Fall Baiting

either quote or date, which ever comes first. I am pretty excited to see how the fall differs from spring and see what is in the area...while at the same time giving the bears a fond memory of food by that tree in the blue barrel

    Holy Crap they give you a long time before the season to bait in Wyoming. Wish we had that here in Maine...all we got is 30 days prior to season. So July 27 is first day of baiting, which is in 2 days!

    Re: Fall Baiting

    In my area here in canada, I hit the bakery and get a garbage bag full of old bread/cookies, whatever they have ($5 for massive black bag full). Then I hit the Fast food places to get old frier grease (free). Then I go to the Milling Store and get 100lbs of oats ($10). And then I mix it together in a barrel. Add a honey burn to it and they go nuts.

    I have also heard of taking a barrel half full of sugar/water/corn/oats/ and puttign it over a fire till she is cooking good. Once most of the water burns off you have a nice hard sticky mess. Kind of like a massive sweet lollypop!!! I Have never tried this one!

    I find spring is easier here because there is less for them to naturally feed on.

    Hope this helps.

    For a simple bait try popcorn with a gallon of syurp. Easy and light to haul around. Hang a chicken in a plastic bag and poke some holes in the bag for a good stink bait. We had 14 different bears come to our bait this spring using popcorn and a dead chicken in a bag. This fall it is going to be a 500 A-Square shooting 250 grain bullets 130 grains of powder 3350-3500 fps. Ross

    Sounds like quite the round there Ross! Im using my trusty Marlin 1895 GBL .45-70 loaded with 405gr hard casts over 43.5gr Reloader 7 for 1800-1900fps.
