    Anyone looking for equipment to get started with the predator management bear foot-snaring program, drop me a line.

    Could you post some pictures of your sets and give some ideas on appropriate bait to use?

    Just set out some baits today and will be going out to see if any were hit on Wednesday. If any are hit, I'll set them up with bucket snares and stay in the field until Saturday evening. Anyone else having any luck?

    Yes, there are a lot of bears in that area. We have gotten a few already and hope to get more because we have seen plenty of bears in that area but zero moose.

    Are you guys snaring brown bears or is it just black bears?

    In the part of 16B where we were at, only black bears are allowed. Had a lot of hits on the buckets, but could not keep the bears from tearing them down this year. We'll try again next year.
