Thread: Best way to be legal

  1. #1

    Default Best way to be legal

    I am new to bear baiting and plan to set up a station in the spring. I know I have to get the GPS coordinates to F&G and the station has to be a mile from the nearest residence. What is the best way to determine that? A mile diameter circle is a pretty big area. Do I just have to walk the whole area or what? Just curious as to how others figure it out.

    I am hoping to put one on Bald Mountain somewhere.

    Mark a waypoint where you want to put a bait station and then mark waypoints of the nearest houses and see how far away you are.

    Default Use your gps

    I mark the known houses and cabins and mark my spot it tells you your distance and then hope and pray I'm not missing anything. Unless you can fly low over or walk in circles for a long time I think that's the best you can do. One area I use I'm very familiar with the other one I used gps and google earth you gotta know the regs when I registered last year fish and game tried to tell me I couldn't bait within a mile of a river and I had to show them that it was only specific rivers.

    well not exactly.. the google earth of my area around Clear is nearly 17 years old, there is a ton of outdated photography on there.

    Not to rain on your parade, but in the last couple of years the number of Browns in that area has really shot up. So have the number of baiters. There are black bears there but be prepared to try and get away from everyone else and the Brownies.
