    Default Another Unit 16 question

    I want to hunt black bear in unit 16 this spring but the only road access appears to end at Petersville. Is it wise to think I can drive up there and set up a decent bait station within the area, without the use of a boat or atv. Thanks Again.

    Yes, it's possible. However, there are two things to consider.

    1) It's a crowded area. Lots of baits up there.
    2) It can be extremely difficult to find an area that meets the 1 mile from a cabin rule, be easy to access and not have another bait there.

    I see tons of bears in the area so you should have no trouble getting one. No real giants, but some decent bears. Play by the rules, wildlife troopers inspect baits in 14 and 16 quite often.
