    Dear "Vance in Alaska"


    Here at the "Real'Man Store" we sell bear bait barrels for "REAL MEN". Now we appreciate that most "Girlie Men" will use a 55 Gal. Steel drum, and we have empathy for the "Sissy'Men" who use plastic drums (Kind of like a extra-small condom).

    To the point, Sir; this year we will be offering our Super'Duper Mother of all Bait'barrels, code name the: "Mogan'gattor". This unit is built on a 5,000 Gallon water Tank, we will design to your specification a shooting abode, mounted a'top of said tank. Please Note that the proposed unit is fully mobile, and mounted on a 6X6.

    We remain your humble servant, and request a early meeting to complete the final design requirements.

    As we say here, "It ain't the size of the gun that makes the MAN, it is the "Size" of his Bear Bait Barrel.

    (Note: this is intended as humor) Ps. Unit is available special order with a 4" Dia. Nozzle, std. nozzle at the big'man store is 2" dia. (for a very modest charge we can make your nozzle as long as 36")

    Default Better set up a production line

    I see a run coming that is going to clean you out.
    This was way funny. I love it. Thanks for posting.

    May I suggest as an accessory a boom to be able to lift the bear with?

    To keep the brownies out I only make the hole 4.5 inches. They can't get their paws inside. Beer keg is a 20 gal. Easier to carry on those 5 mile walkins.

    heres mine. Gary down at Greatland Welding just made it for me. its about 2 feet tall sturdy as all get out! locking top feeder, about a 6-7 foot chain. i guess your supposed to hang it from a tree kinda like a bird feeder. they can knock a little food out the bottom hole and cubs cant reach it. its heavy, but i think id rather pack it than a big ol barrel. too bad ill never get to use it... i have to give it away on Saturday...

    Preed-
    Nice unit. I may have to plagerize on your design a bit if you don't mind. My barrel is one without a removable lid, so I was thinking about cutting a square flap out on one end and mounting a hinge similar to what you have. It would make it a helluva lot easier for filling it up with bear munchies.
    My wife thinks I'm nuts for doing all of this. (Its my first year) She will understand when I take her out and put her in the tree stand 30' from some critters. Im so excited.

    Default 55 Gallon Barrel

    I'm having to go with something more "packable" that a 55-gallon barrel. I've got two barrels if anyone is interested. One is already rigged up and ready for bait.
    I'm in Anchorage.

    By the look of the bears stomach, it looks like he ate it.

    Dang I cringe when I see someone use a perfectly good 15 gal keg for baiting. All I see is 1/3 of a 3 tier homebrew system That stainless will last forever, but they sure are heavy! I do have 4, so maybe you're on to something!

    The beer kegs are interesting. How do you fill them?

    Dont use bbl's, I dont feel like carrying them. ALso dont use stands, I dont feel like building them We just dig in under a deadfall and bury it with other logs so we know if it was hit. That sow and cubs cleaned us out.
