Okay, so im not completely new to hunting, but this whole Alaska thing has me thrown off. I am used to setting up corn feeders and such, but nothing like this bear business! I have been reading these forums, and searching the net for some good solid information on what a new bear baiter would need, and what he/she should be prepared for. But I still feel like I am coming up short. Some of the information I am looking for includes but is not limited to the following:
While scouting, besides tracks on trails etc, what should I be looking for in a good bait site?
Tree stand or ground blind? How far away and how high up? I will be rifle hunting mostly this year.
Baits, I see a lot of dog food, popcorn and sweets ideas floating around. I dont expect moms secret recipe, but should the dog food be sweet? I will be getting a few scent balls from Jess (BE907)
What type of containers? 55 gal drums? Large garbage containers? Holes dug and covered in timber?
Honestly, any general information would be much appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
