    Default Yetna Bait Station

    Stumbled upon a bait station on the Yetna while leaving mine yesterday. I never saw it until I saw the bait. Yours had popcorn under a big stump and air freshners hanging on a string. If it's yours, I'm sorry. But Glad I found out someone is baiting about 400 yards away from me. Good luck. PM me if ya want details on mine.

    I had the same thing happen to me last weekend while walking a moose trail to my GPS coordinates. So far this season I've stumbled across five bait stations while hiking and scouting. To make matters worse, I hiked cross-country over 1/2 mile through Devil's club only to learn someone had just set a stand within 50 yards where I registered a site. I never would have guessed there were that many bait stations on the Yetna.

    I don't mind the bait stand being close at all. It would be nice to meet up and know about eachother. The bad part is now I had to figure a new route back to my stand. The 1/2 mile hike sucked before, but i think I found a better way in without interupting thier stand. Maybe a little bit easier hike too.

    I know a cople guys that bait up there too.
