    .300 grain barnes triple shock! Just kidding. I don't think there is anything you can really do to do that. Keep meat products out of it, but grizz like dog food and other stuff too, so there is no miracle cure.

    Hard to keep them away. Don't use frying grease, fish products or anything "meaty'. Just keep to sweet stuff. They still eat popcorn and sweets though...maybe try Bait Em 907 "NO BROWN BEARS ALLOWED" sticker on your barrel...lol

    Like others have already stated, Brownie's will eat anything. The difference is that IF you don't use any grease or fish base and no meat products the Browns will usually move on relatively quickly. On the other hand if you do choose to use the prementioned you will have a Brown that will stay in the area and really ruin your site and any hope of keeping Blackies around the area.

    Cut your hole in your barrel very small. No more than 5" diameter. Don't make it easy for them to get food or they'll come back every night.

    That's awesome Marc...

    But to answer the question I'd say stay as sweet as possible with the baits. Meats and whatnot can and do draw in other uninvited guests. But if a brownie is cruising by in the area and smells a bait, you can't stop it from coming in if it's so inclined... Sometimes it just is what it is, but that typically helps....
