    Default April 15th, who's baiting?

    Anyone out there baiting now? I went up shooting up by my area yesterday and there was still too much snow. Maybe in another week if the sun will come out.

    I walked all over the mountain the other day looking for sign, wow you said snow it's going to be a month before anyone gets to far in. Now I did see a brownie track in the area not too far away so I was thinking about trying to poke a hole in him

    Usually can't get in my area until at least the 2nd week of May, even than its foot access only, too much rotten snow for fourwheeler.

    I found a few "2012" Bait Station signs/permits posted on trees last week.

    I agree, although I have done it on the 15th before. I'm gonna try the third this year and see if I can't bait and get up two new stands up. Good luck this year everyone. I know I am jacked to get this year going!

    Im not bringing my bait out until May 5 this year. Even then, I know there will be snow and it'll be a slog to get out to my location.
    Im not anticipating whacking a bear that weekend but you never know. I'll get that bait set and primed for the weeks following. Usually its the last two weeks in May that are the best, even on an average snow year.

    I'm hoping for below freezing nights again, to give the snow a little substance. I'd like to make the first set with the snowmachine. Failing that, I'll be waiting till the snow goes away.

    I was hoping to get my barrel set up, but portions of the trail were cleared this winter and are snowless (tough on the snow machine), and the rest of the trail has too much snow for the wheeler. I am now planning on waiting until May 5th. I wasn't going to put bait out until then anyway.

    I tried a few days ago still 3 feet of snow on the ridges the lower elevations are clear but the trail extends over the ridge line.. so stuck for a few more days hoping it melts enough to wheel in there.

    Putting ours out in the morning. Good luck to everyone else. We have high hopes this year as they found our site just before we took it down last season.
