I was just thinking today when looking for a spot for my stand, what do you guys do with the carcass when you shoot a bear over your bait.
Say you drop one close to the barrel and its a pretty large bear, maybe too big to drag out. Do you leave it there, haul out the whole thing, bury it?
I was just thinking that it might attract a brown bear or deter more black bears from coming in, I don't know. Just wondering what you all do? I'd hate to have a good stand and ruin it after only one bear cause I left a carcass there, but I'd also hate to have to haul a 6 1/2 footer out whole by my lonesome.
