    I don't know if this is a secret or not; I know of hunters that bait areas that have no animals also some area only see bears late in the year. Not saying this is your problem but you may be in one of these areas.

    scent... scent.. scent.. scent scent scent... if they cant smell it, they take a LONG time to find it. there are a lot of threads about finding where to set up a bait, and near water is one of the first i look for. then find the game trails,

    NOW is a good time to get a good 5 gallon pail, drop 2 whole chickens in it, a gallon of water, and duct tape the lid on, and put behind the boiler/furnace for several weeks, then when you set up you bait in May, hang it.. pop the lid and RUN! if there are bears around they will find it..
