After much consideration, I'm thinking I might give up baiting this year. Just doesn't seem to be worth it anymore. The size of the bears I've been seeing in recent years isn't worth it, nor is trying to find a better spot year after year. Don't see as many bears on the stand as in years past and it's just too expensive to move out and go where it's much better. It's a great way to harvest a meat bear but as for finding a big old bruin the odds just aren't there anymore. Time to move on I'm afraid .
