What do you guys use in your bait barrels? How often do they need to be re-filled?

TALK .. huntTALK hats... TALK !!! Not that it makes a difference but










But hey, You can use the word "CHAT"


.....

Baits are funny man, We do alot of refilling once the Bears start hitting them hard in May. We usually use Bread mostly and also use dog food, (Whispers under his breath) goats, Old food, Vegatables, or anyhting else that we come across.

IronBuck,

It seems like the Bud Light is the preferred bait, judging by the picture...

If you want the 800lb+ bears here, it seems to work better if you use the Grain-Jello-Soda Pop recipe. Once you get a 800 pounder into the site, it takes a lot of food to keep him happy.
Moosie is generally happy with the slightly smaller bears...

Moosie,
I was gonna tell you what I found out on the Geese, but I guess you wanted a Day of Silence...

I also can't wait till the opener Moosie. As i have several spots set up for this year. Last year had 5-6 bears hitting my bait. My wife wants to shoot one a friend with blackpowder and I will take one. So hopefully will take 3. My son if his attitude changes starts hunting this year will hunt one to .MAYBE? He will be 12.

Fond memories....

Dumpster diving for bear bait.

Me- "Hi, wondering if you have old bread that you throw away or sell?"

Eddy's Bakery Outlet employee- "We have 100 racks of it, is this for hogs?"

Me- "No maam, its for bears."

Eddy's Bakery Outlet employee- "We're all out."

Me- "Did I say bears? Stupid me, I meant to say hogs."

Eddy's Bakery Outlet employee- "You can fill up your truck and trailer for $5, just pull around back!"

LOL Tyson.... I made some Friends at one of the Bakeries. I was Real nice to the Ladies and they were nice to me. I restacked the Tracks real nice and Always said thank you...

Then the work Began
I have a Picture of Little "O" and Zachary in the Back of the Truckpulling out bait. I would also Let Rhet (Warrens kid) eat as many as he wanted on top of paying him to mow the lawn. He was in hog heaven
Truth be told, I tried a few myself once or Twice


Ahhh.. The clock is ticking down.. COME on April

A bit related to this topic...

I worked at the airport in Laramie for a while and was able to get the 55 gal. drums freeof charge. They get glycol (plane de-icer) in them and by giving them away they don't have to go through the effort and cost of disposal. Check your local small airport and you may be able to luck out as well. Just be sure to wash them well, glycol is kin to antifreeze.

Tim,

Does the Glycol have the same sweet taste of anti-freeze? (Warning: Do Not Drink Anti-Freeze)

I am thinking there is no reason to wash the barrel out. The whole goal is to kill the bear, isn't it???

Elky, is that the same as a 5-gallon Bucket? And do you mean the Newspaper uses them for the production of newspapers, or do you mean other people advertise to sell them in the Newspaper?

In Idaho I think the Options are to Use a 55 gallon (Metal) drum anchored to a tree or dig a Pit that is not deeper or wider then 4' Dia. (Or something like that). I'll have to see what it says about a Bucket in a tree


Elkhunter, Are you going to have another BBQ at your house and try to get in another one ...
