I have set up a bait for my first time and in less than two days it started getting hard hits. Dog food and syrup and a sprinkle or two of anise has trees layed over, bark chaffed off trees from the barrel chain, bear scat, scapes, etc.. I have spent considerable time on site and have yet to see anything tho. I have been out various times between 2 pm until 1030 pm. Do bears start to bed down when the temperature drops in the evening? I know they are nocturnal but what is the chance the bait is being hit during the dark hours only? I plan to get out by daybreak this weekend in hopes to catch them having breakfast. Will they be on some sort of consistent schedule when coming to the bait like each morning or evening or does it fluctuate? If I they are only hitting during non-shooting hours, how can I influence their behavior?
