Thread: Grizzlys do and will eat popcorn and all of it!

  1. #1

    Default Grizzlys do and will eat popcorn and all of it!

    The old saying that if you got grizzlys around use sweented popcorn and they will loose interest was completly disproven this past monday. I put out 30 gallons of powder sugered popcorn and with in 1 day I had 7 diffrent grizzlys eat every kernal and they ripped the barrel right of the tree and drag it 50 yards back in the bush. I also took sheet metal and made the only hole to get in the barrel about 2in by 3in to discourage big paws. They just tore right tru the sheet metal. So in my eyes the popcorn is liked about as much as everything else it seems to me.

    LOL if it is edible they will eat it... i don't think there is any way to discourage them from cleaning any site out.

    hang a red gas jug up and watch them go at it.... seems to be their favorite..

    Hmm... I don't think sheet metal is strong enough - I'd change the drum out and let the site cool down. Bears are animals and some won't pass up a free meal although they generally don't care for popcorn compared to grease and dog food. Any idea if there are other baits in the aera? What's the local food sources like?
