I know some guys who used the anise and beaver castor scented bombs this spring to spruce their baits up when on stand, they claim they worked. Personally I have used Anise and 12 miles of dead fish bear sense sticks to spruce up baits in the past. Like anything you need to be in the right place first off, if a bear can't smell it or doesn't feel comfortable in the surroundings to come in, they won't work very well. FYI, if you do use the beaver castor or 12 mile of dead fish look out the smell can be pretty intense[8D].

Good luck

Mix up some bear crack and save yourself some money. ( if its legal in your state)

Get yourself a couple bags of marshmallows andsome sort of berry flavored jello mix and put it in an old frying pan. Cook that over an old camp stove and stir occasionally. You will experience a thick white smoke that cascades out through the woods.

If you can locate an already used food source ( apple trees, grains etc.) I would set up in that area, or any other area that the bears are known to fequent on a regular basis.

Honey or bacon burns can also prove effective but I would use bear crack before anything.

Another item that has been used in the back country is a propane torch.( don't light it of course) Just crack the valve to let the smell leak from the tip. The bears goes nuts over the additive in propane.

Try doing a burn in the evening from a ridgetop above the area that has bears in it. I would return to the same spot the next day and try again. If the bears came in from the odor the night before, there is a good chance that they will not be far the next day. Your best chances are at first light and last light.

hope this helps. Sorry for taking so long to respond to this....I have been bear hunting for the last month ;0)

PS- you might want to call your fish and game office to find out if kitchen grease is considered bait. If its poured on the ground they willdig for hours looking for the food

I used a Bacon Bear Bomb last year and it brought 3 in that night including the boar I shot. The only problem was it made me hungry but they sure came in quick to it.
