I know that a lot of guys have some pretty clever ways to dispense food slowly so the bears spend a lot of time camping out on the bait. But I wonder how if the downside outweights the upside.. I don't need a black bear to spend more than a minute or three at the bait to get an opportunity to get an arrow into it. But if a big brown bear comes in and camps on my bait, that can ruin my whole evenings hunt if he won't leave.
Maybe some of you from the camping camp (haha) can straighten out my line of thinking.
