I have a friend who purchased a fishing lodge in Canada a few years ago. After he bought it, he found out it came with some bear tags......So he was now in the bear hunting business.

What he learned, is to hangsome bait in a tree so the bear has to hug the tree to get to the bait. He then covers the tree trunk with a variety of baits, peanut butter, smoke french fry grease, etc.The bear gets the sticky bait on his fur, and whenthe bear leaves the bait it puts bait scent in the air. As other bears cut this trail they back track it to your bait sight. Hope this helps.

where are you bear hunting .,everything ever body has said is all real good stuff that i have used at one point and time.,our best luck was using oats mixed with sugar and water., let sit for a couple of days., they really took that really well . and then we put fryer geese on last so that the bear would have to walk in it and when they left they had it on there pads and left a scent trail right to the bait., , and we had allot of other bear hunters in the area., and we scored the first night .,

Not to rub it in but I saw one while deer hunting this weekend. I also got a picture of a big sow on my trail camera.

Are there a lot of berries in your woods? That might be the problem????
