    I got really cool pictures of a Lynx chasing a squirrels at by barrel two years ago, I never got a bear on camera that year because I had to quit early in te season but those Lynx pictures made the effort worth it!

    I've watched porcupine, moose, bats, voles, flying squirrels and marten. The marten almost stepped on my shoulder. I've got photos of lynx, but have not seen one.

    Snowshowhair, I'd be excited to see that many "wabbits" running around. Baiting and bears are a lot of work. Rabbits are more fun and yummy to boot. Are you bribable? I've never seen one near a bait site in 25 plus years of baiting.
    I have seen wolves as close as a few miles when I was headed to the sites by boat, but that doesn't really count as being on the bait.

    Actually they would be hares up here, but they get on camera mostly at our #4 bait station and can wander in when we're sitting on the bait. We bait up the Elliot around the Tatalina. I have a "not very good" picture of one right in the bait barrel but I think I need to make them smaller to post here.

    This was one of the older cameras so the pics aren't great...I tried to zoom in on him with his little noggin sticking out of the hole in the barrel.

    Is it legal to bait rabbits? Looks like a keeper to me.

    I've had hates on my barrel, particularly when I had sweet COB in it for bait.

    Squirrels always seem to be running off with powder sugar donuts...maybe hares have a sweet tooth?

    Lots of moose.. A few coyotes and just a couple of martens.
    Last year I had my first ever wolverine come through. The camera got him, I never personally got to see it... Still cool tho...
