I did some looking around and found these couple of statements to the use of scents for bear hunting.
Page 27 of the hunting regs has this; "you may also use scent lures with a baiting permit".
Now since you can only get a bait permit in conjunction with a registered bait station, scent lures are only allowed during baiting season at a registered bait station.
This is also how the Palmer fish and game explained it.
With a predator control permit:
" Scent lures may be used for bears ONLY under a bear control permit during the time frame that bating is allowed."
Bait and scent are treated as one and the same.Scent will be easier to clean as long as it is not wiped on the surounding areas. All contaiminated soil must be removed after the bait season ends.
