I have an Arctic Tern (similar in size to a Super Cub) and am interested in setting up a bait station (I'm in Wasilla). I have an area mostly identified on the West side of Cook Inlet, and I have a couple fo rookie questions:
1. For a remote bait station, do you use a barrel or simply a stack of logs?
2. If you use a barrel, how do you transport it to the site with the plane? A barrel is not exactly aerodynamic. Do you remove both ends and strap it on so air flows through the "tube"
2. Preferred bait? Last fall I used a mixture of Ol' Roy, Sweet feed, and a little molasses, which seemed to work pretty well. I had lots of hits, but didn't shoot a bear (I spent a lot of time stocking the pantry and spent little time actually hunting).
3. I'm on Bush Tires, any suggestion on where to go?
If would be willing to share your favorite spot with me I would be happy to help keep the station stocked with bear goodies. I don't have a lot of free time, but the plane makes me pretty mobile.
Feel free to PM me if you would like to "share" a station.
