This is my first year bear baiting, let alone bear hunting, and I just recently set up a bait site. I was walking into my station today(bears are starting to "hit" it, slowly) and I spooked a few blackie cubs out of a tree within 200 yards of my bait site. I started making noises and yelling as to get the bears away from me, didn't want the sow to go after me. I was wondering what you guys and gals do when walking to your site. Do you walk in quietly or make noise? I don't want to walk in quietly and have a bear charge me or walk into a grizz the area I am in is pretty brushy so its hard to see anything from a distance. But will making noises while walking to the site scare the bears away for good? Any input would be great. Thanks for the help, learned alot from this site already!
