    Default Black Bear hunting

    When do blackies start coming out? I will be baiting this year for the first time. Do you start out baiting on the first day you can bait. Or do you wait. I will be hunting in south central. Thanks

    I bait the first day I can, the earliest I have had a bear hit it was 2 days later all in the evening time.

    Good luck

    I start putting my bait out the first week in May and start getting hit from the 22nd-26th every year.

    Default Guessing later the better in my area

    With the cold weather and amount of snow we have, I am guessing later than early. I usually get my bait out the week before the end of April. I think the earliest I've seen sign was April 29. I think this wil surely be a better end of May baiting season in my area.

    Nothing wrong with putting bait out on first legal day (Refuge land is different than State) but there does not appear to be any need to rush, IME.

    My bait is out around May 10, and then a week before seeing activity. Then it picks up quickly until June 10 or so.
