I have a bait site set up on the southern part of the dalton and we have been told that it holds some good bears. As of last weekend we have had zero pics and zero hits! It is frustrating me to no ends! I am trying to get my wife her first archery kill and we can't seem to attracked a single bear. I am tempted to set up another site but we have so much work and food at this one. My question to you veteran baiters is has anyone familiar to that area and how those bears act? I know guys south of livengood are getting hit but I keep thinking maybe the farther north the later they will hit, do you think that is true?
We have a mix of dog food and wet cob mixed all up with lots of pancake syrup and powdered sugar. We also cooked 3 pounds of bacon and poured the grease over the bait and scattered the pieces on the ground. We have a couple dozen salmon fillets hanging in trees and we have burned crisco,powdersugar and jelly when we are on stand but nothing! I figured it has to be a lack of bears but what do you guys think?
Thanks in advance for any input and by if your wondering I am not giving up!
