Re: Spring bait is out

Magnumitis and his dad went for a ride last weekend and checked the baits. Sounds like mine has been hit. the drip bag is gone and the feed is 2/3 -1/2 gone. I will be going up Friday to check the SD card in my camera and restock some feed. Then decide weither or not its worth sitting on this weekend.

    Re: Spring bait is out

    I spent the weekend working on my bait site. This was the first time I was able to get up there since I put it in 3 weeks ago. I got there and the barrel was twisted around on the single chain and at a 90* to the tree bone dry. So I put another chain on it at the bottom to remedy that problem, now they will have to at least work to get the bottom of the barrel scraped dry. Unfortunatley I had a camera malfunction and have no pictures of what happened to my barrel. I think I have all the issues fixed though. I hung a new drip bag, poured in another 150lbs of feed, couple gallons of honey. Moved my camera to a better location and added a second camera on 30second time laps. so I should definitley have tons of pics when the bear(s) return. I did take some more pics too



    That rock ledge is about 275 yards away and is one of 2 possible shooting locations


    If you look really close you will see a barrel about an inch low and an inch left of center. This pic was take from the rock ledge


    the canyon wall above my bait


    heading up the mtn to work on the bait

    The more pictures I see, the better I like how that site fits into the terrain. Very well done, the pictures will come. The bears liked it last year, they'll be back.

    Re: Spring bait is out *updated*

    I got a ton of pics this week I randomly selected a few to share on here. I had about 175 lbs of feed and 6 days later it was empty again. They are starting to hit it pretty hard. I went out thursday and saw the blondeish one come in, watched it for about 30 mins until dark he is there several times a day almost every day. I think there are a couple pretty good bears hitting but they are coming in late.
