If a 35 gallon barrel looks.......

Not yet! Season opens Oct. 1. I walked in to re-bait the barrel Saturday and he was standing there at 2:30 in the afternoon. He just looked at me and walked off the hillside. I am going to guess him 300 lbs. We have killed some that weighed in at 150 and he was at least twice as big as them. So far we have seen a sow and a cub two different times and this big bear, just walking into the baits during the middle of the day. We have found at least 10 different sets of tracks around the barrels and all 6 baits are getting hammered. The plastic barrels are holding up well. I have a couple pictures of the barrels I will post tomorrow.
