    Default Brown bear over bait

    The way I see what ADN is saying you can now shoot brown bear over bait in 16b is this correct?

    I'm looking for details on this as well. I saw on the news they approved some brown bear snaring in certain areas but I didn't hear anything about baiting. If anyone finds any reliable information please post a link - thanks.

    it's how they snare them, you can't shoot them over bait ** .. It's just worded weird in the article.







    ** you can in certain circumstances

    "The bear control program involves issuing permits to qualified members of the public to take black bears and brown bears over bait or with foot snares in order to increase moose calf survival on the west side of Cook Inlet. Aircraft can be used to access the bait stations or snares, but not to spot and take free roaming brown bears."


    copy and pasted from fish amd game web site. sounds to me like you can hunt them over bait in 16B. they did it once in the Tok area, but no longer.
    Hunt until you don't like it any more

    Man.. now I really can't wait until bear season. Here is the link jcorwin4278 quoted from. I'm going to go and talk to ADF&G tomorrow and get the rest of the details and start stocking up on used fryer oil.

    So after reading the ADF&G info, has anyone got a clearer answer on the areas that are going to be open for brownie baiting?

    And what's the bag limit for browns over bait? Would be nice to be able to kill more than one.

    We won't know anything until at least April 1st.

    I called the Palmer office after Anchorage had no information or knowledge on the specifics of the program. After a very lengthy conversation I learned there have not yet been any parameters, policies, regulations, geographic restrictions, required classes, permits or bag limits established for baiting brown bears in unit 16B. What will be required or allowed (and to what degree) is anyone's guess. There are a large number of calls coming in asking for information but the agency won't have anything defined or ready for public distribution until April 1st at the earliest. The Palmer office is asking people to wait until after April 1st before checking in for the specifics on the program.

    After what seemed like forever (the agent was patient but I felt like I was pulling nails), I finally secured the Biologist's number for the project and left him a message. Hopefully I'll talk to him before the weekend.

    Thanks for taking the lead on this.

    I really hope it works out adn is accessible for most hunters. Instead of a program to satisfy the public, but makeing it so hard to hunt it's almost impossible to get to the open area.
