    Default Is Johnson Pass trail a crowded baiting area

    Hello All, I tried to search this forum and didn't find much information on bear baiting along the Johnson Pass trail. I was wondering if along the trail there is heavy hunting pressure with a lot of baiting?

    I could be wrong, but I don't expect that anywhere more than a mile or so from the road would have much baiting activity. If you can't get a boat, ATV, airplane, or highway vehicle close to it, not too many people are going to carry the kind of weight necessary to set up and maintain a bait stand.

    You'd be surprised. Hope area is non motorized and there are barrels everywhere back in there

    not more than a mile though like he said. Most are actually in illegal sites and troopers are finally cracking down
    Grab a friend, a rifle and go hunt.
