    good write up! nice to see people explain things, I hear often in the hunting world, "look for a good area" or "be where the animals are" but people often don't really tell you where to start looking.

    note might be good to explain what a "honey burn" is, the first time I heard it I was like what, why?

    Thanks for the baiting tips since this will be my first time trying to bait. Hopefully I can seal the deal after 30 years of trying.

    Here in Minnesota, a bacon burn works well too, need several pieces.

    Thanks, you answered a question I had about setting up on a little creek I've been checking out.

    I can see how that would go! "hey where did the bacon go?"

    actually my hunting buddy has a video of me eating kettle corn we were popping for bait one year.

    I have had many bears show up at my cabin while I had coffee brewing in the percolator.
    Hunt Ethically. Respect the Environment.

    Good write up. I can't tell people enough when I'm giving advice to be ready when walking into the site. Bears will spend hours on a bait and I have killed just as many if not more walking into my bait than I have actually sitting on it.
    One area I baited the wind always circled and was almost impossible to hunt while sitting on it close enough for archery because of the constantly changing wind direction. The area was a great bait site and my wife and I killed several bears on it but what we did was to put something up that the Bears would mess with that made noise then we backed up out of sight of the bait. When we herd them on the bait we would move in and make the shot. I had to cut a bigger hole in the barrel that they could get their head in so I could move closer when their head was in the barrel and this worked beautifully. With each spot there are different issues to work through but once you figure out how to hunt your spot it is worth any troubles. If you know bears are there but they aren't working like you want them to don't be afraid to change things up a bit until you find the setup they like, sometimes moving the bait 50 yards can make all the difference.

    Only issue I have with this is bacon grease fires. It's been very dry here the last two years. I like the idea though
