    Default Bear meat for trapping bait?

    Usually I trap around gut piles from animals we kill, but the other day I was offered a bunch of old bear meat to use for trapping or what ever.
    So 1. is it legal to use it providing it was shot after june 1st?
    and 2. are fox and coyotes and marten attracted to the meat or is there something repulsive about it cause its a meat eater?

    Haha...............good question 4mer.
    If the meat was not required to be salvaged, then it should be legal to use. All depends on which unit it came from and what time of year. But then, how could any of that be proved? Read thru both the game regs and trapping regs to get a better idea.

    page 17 of the Hunting Regs:

    You MAY use the following as bait...

    Brown Bear Meat - EXCEPT taken under a subsistence brwon bear management permit and brown bears taken over bait in Units 12, 20C, 20E, and 21D.

    Black Bear Meat taken from JUNE 1 - DEC 31 (As long as the black bear hide was salvaged)
