    Default Fairbanks Bear Bait Stands

    I am already planning for spring bear bait season

    Does anyone have any luck doing Black Bear Baiting in the Fairbanks area. I know people like to keep their sites secret (totally understood). I ended up setting up stands way out the Fairbanks area towards Delta. Set up one in the Fairbanks area with no luck...bears not even circling around the stand...ended up being a bad area I thought.

    I was considering heading upstream the Salcha and setting up a stand off of the Salcha. Anyone have any info about the area and bear baiting?

    Thanks

    It seems that the Fairbanks are would be har to bait as youhave to be a mile from a residence and 1/4 from a road or maintained trail. It has to be a nightmare trying to be within the law in such an area.

    Watch the Salcha, there are alot of cabins up there and you have to be 1 mile from them. You can get bears in the Fai area, just be prepared to compete with others. Good luck

    I hunt the Fairbanks area and the closest registered bait stand was a little over 10 miles. You just have to be willing to drive, walk, or 4-wheel further than the other guy.
