The gut pile ended up in a plastic bag. I then put it in the trailer which was in the sun. A day later it was getting ripe. I ended up putting it in another 10 bags and a week later when I went to the dup it looked like a beach ball and smelled beyond belief. It actually bounced when it hit the ground. I feel bad for the poor slob at the dump who finally broke it.
I cleaned out my freezer of old hamburger and old steaks last year and had about 30 pds of it. I left it in a tote out by my bait barrels and it was in there for about 2 weeks in the end of May. My wife started smelling it up at the house is the only thing that made me remember it. I cant smell except really bad stuff and perfume's. I took it up to my bait site and when I opened it I started gagging mouth started watering and everything I ate was trying to come back up. My 11 yr old son took off running up the hill because he smelled it and he turned and started laughing at me because of me heaving down by the bait. Bad part about it was they had plastic bags in it and I had to reached into the juice and nasty meat to pull them out. To this day when I open that tote my wife can still smell it. I used hot water bleach and everything I could possible use to clean it. It isn't as strong of a smell to me now so I can't smell it. But she can. So it get's kept out by the bait barrells all year.
Mntman I have to get another truck load also once I start baiting. It is a chore to haul it all in to the bait site's. And people think it is easy to get a bear. I think it is more of a task than most hunting. The final outcome is well worth it to me. Alot of people do not realize what baiting bears goes into it. I have seen people shudder at what I do to get bait in. I have packed bait over a mile threw snow to start my bait site's. Then it usually melts when I actually sit the site's or have people sit them.
