I have been running a stand out in PWS for about 8 years now. Always bears there and have taken quite a few. This year I put the bait in about 4 weeks ago. And so far, 1 deer. Trail cam has nothing on it. Eagle, raven.... me.
A friend is using my other stand about 1/2 mile down the beach. We have about 190 photos of one 6 foot, rubbed out bear. And that is it. One only.
It is baffling me the lack of bears. It is just not normal.
I have an airman coming in Friday to hunt for two days. So tonight or tomorrow I am going to do a jelly burn and see what happens.
