I've never baited before but would love to get into it. I've read through the regs and understand all the requirements but am left wondering, is it even feasible to do if I live in Anchorage. With all the trips out of town required to maintain a baitsite and not to mention all the competition from others doing the same thing off of the highway, is it worth it? Can a guy get into a spot off the highway and do ok? I don't have a boat or a quad, just my truck and my feet. Not opposed to some hard work but it will cost some money to do the trips down south constantly throughout the spring and summer.
I think the other determining factor is the number of other hunters doing the same thing and finding an area with a decent number of bears. After hunting hard all last spring from the seward highway I saw lots of bears along the Turnagain arm but I saw zero bears south of there, in the legal baiting zone.
Can anyone give me some encouraging advice?
