I am starting from scratch basically here. I aquired an allegedly good bait site this morning so I want to hear what works for you guys from what to look for in selecting a place for the barrel and how to set the barrel up. along with baits and attractants. I have a brand new heavy duty plastic 55 gallon drum. I plan on filling it with dog food, grain, old donuts, and break and as much sweet stuff as I can find. I know some people pour vanilla or maple frosting in their baid and use for scent sticks. Mainly I am wondering the best way to position a barrel and cut it so that your bait lasts as long as possible before refills but still keeps the bears interest. Any advice is welcomed.
