    Unhappy Death of a Bait Barrel

    So it looks like I kept my barrel out a weeeee bit too long....At least this was only the second brown to hit my site. At least the blackies cleaned it out pretty good before trouble rolled in







    The aftermath....

    From the time stamps on the photos; it appears that bear was there over an hour beating the crap outta your barrel. He sure looks like he wanted to take that barrel home with him in a real bad way. Thanks for the post. Amazing power those bubbas have.

    Exclamation

    Keep your eyes open for available KEGs during the off-season, fellas. Mine worked wonderfully. 15-gallon should run you about $50 to $60.

    They broke my turnbuckle on the chain and the hasp on my lid, but only managed to scrape the bumber stickers off the keg body.

    I'm gonna run a steel rod through the handles at the top and leave the top open other than that. Keeps the big brown boys and girls from digging from the top but allows the scent to waft and me to fill it without touching the keg (lid).

    Already I can't wait for next year!
