Well been at it a solid week and change so far. Putting close to 12 hours a day during prime
Times sitting about 65 yards uphill from a active bait site. Of the three baits in the area we have counted around 18 different bears counting Cubs. However none have come to the bait while we are there. New to this and figured I'd share a few things I've noticed
No pattern to when or how often they hit bait.
They don't stay long, usually about 20 minutes.
Regulars usually hit twice a day.
They know when your there.
Just because a bear walks by don't mean he'll stop at the bait.
Just because a bear hits the bait don't mean he'll come back.
No matter how nasty maggots are on a slimy decaying beaver carcass, they will still eat it.

That's about it so far. Have yet to see a grizzly at the bait, I can see where this can be frustrating. No black bears out here.
