    Default Checked the bait this morning and have bears

    Checked the bait this morning and have had 3 or 4 different brown bears and 3 or 4 different blacks on it since the last check on the 5th when I had no hits.

    Nice pic's . If you don't mind me asking what are you using for bait it sure seems to be working.

    I am a novice at this, reading up so when I do go I am prepared. What is COB?

    COB. Corn, Oats and Barley. Comes in 50# sacks at feed stores. I'd go with dog food though.

    When I use dog food I get many more browns in. The COB has molasses in it so that helps with the blackies.

    Sounds good . We have COB with some grains left over from a batch of beer I made mixed with some maple syurp and molasses and a Anise ball we put out on the 1st. My son checked the bait station last night no bears yet but a very curious moose on the trial cam

    To keep the browns from getting food I use 4.5". Seems to work. Rarely do the browns come back more than twice. When I used 5.5" the browns were camping out and cleaning out my barrel every day.

    Hey Casper, are you the guy that was shooting the destroyer at the refuge waiting for permits?

    Cool pics though, we baited up last Thursday and are doing the first check tonight after work. Glad to see you got some blacks in there, should be a prosperous year! (knock on wood)

    Oh ok nevermind. There was a guy there shooting his new bowtech destroyer who I was talking to a little bit about that COB stuff so I thought it might be you.
