Re: What do you use for bait
I hunt BB over bait sometimes. I really like stalking better though. The guides I've been with have used a lot of different stuff such as dinner leftovers, whatever they were, like spaghetti, toast, beans...
Also, lots of cookies, chocolate syrup, donuts and other expired pastries, grease covered popcorn, sugarbeats.
Surprisingly, I never saw many bears go for meat in the spring hunts, not even fat. They always went for the sweet stuff. This is in Maine, New Brunswick, and Alberta.
The best bait out there is beaver carcass.
