I have been scouring this forum, and any local face to face information I can get, but I cannot find the bears.
I have a bait station registered and set up for several weeks now in the Jim Creek area, across the marsh at Jim lake, and I have seen neither hide nor hair of a bear. This is also an incredibly hard spot to access.
I am thinking of registering a station just west of the Susitna river, west of Sunshine, just below the bridge. Does anyone know this area; are there any bears here?
I am willing to put in the work, and I have been. I am doing this to get meat for my family, we love bear ribs, and we even render the fat to make cookies/biscuits/pie crusts, etc...
If I am looking in all the wrong places, please feel free to correct me, and if you would be willing to lead me to a hot spot, I would gladly follow.
I am willing to travel about anywhere, north to trapper creek, or south to Kenai.
