I'm in the Fairbanks area and baiting north of Fairbanks. I went to my stand site yesterday and the snow was still over my waist. I have a feeling this year will be a little different than last. I got to thinking that this may play into out hand though. There is very little new plant growth and that means very little forage for the bears. They will be hungry and we will have a pile of dog food/pop corn waiting for them. Without snow machines set up will require a little effort but the bears have to wake up when their fat supplies run low and that has to happen soon! What are you guy's experience with heavy snow fall years?
