Bear are not predictable
« on: September 11, 2020, 09:49:22 AM »
Not sure why but it's been tough getting bears to consistently come to a bait.  They show up once a week at any time of the day.  Maybe later when it gets colder and more of the natural food is gone.

Maybe to many baits close together. How many do you have out? We tried to keep ours at least  a half a mile to a mile apart..

And apparently the neighbors are setting out a feedbag for them too.   :doah:

I have three baits out.  Shouldn't be too close as from the center bait it's .85 miles to one and .66 miles the opposite direction to the other.  The neighbors closest bait is 3/4 mile from my nearest bait.  We checked with each other to make sure we are not close.  Bears are like people, they love the empty calories.  :rotflmao:

Yep, hard to beat natural foods. I won't put a bait any closer than a mile together.
Hey look your bobber is up!
