  • Question: About "Bait'Stations" Locations.

    Not that I care, as I just want the bears thinned'out. But curious, some stations are clearly to close to residences (Not mine).

    Does F&G plug all the data into a computer, and be able to say, "Wow", you are only 1/4 mile from three houses. Or do they just record information, and not really care..........:question:

    I think they check as many as possiable but there are so many they cant check all of them if there is a problem let them know not saying by your place any of them one person doing it wrong puts a black mark on us all

      I just got my bait permit today. They just punched my description/coordinates into the computer and printed it out for me. I don't think they check to see if your near residence, campgrounds, etc...they leave that up to you and the troopers to check out. But I could be wrong.

        I haven't setup my station yet, but I did talk to F&G about this. They don't try to reference it on computer, nor will they tell you if other baiters are right near you. It would be easy to find houses off the main roads, it's the little cabins that are hard to see on Google. I did a little scouting and got home and looked up on Google maps to see if anything was near me.

          I really doubt thy check or care too much. I went to set up my second stand tonight and found out that somebody has their station in the exact same spot where I was registered and started hunting last year. Kind of frustrating when I've hunted and spent the last 10 years around this area with out ever seeing a bait station and then I bait it last year hang up warning signs and somebody puts their sign 2 feet from where I had mine last year. Oh well they have some stiff competition for the bears in that area

            Havent registered my sites yet (hopefully this week) but I am glad my buddy and I walked the 6 miles into the bush and found the cabin out in the middle of nowhere. I would hate to get a fine up here for something as easy to find as a "house, camp, dwelling, building etc.)

              They won't tell you anything when you register a sight. However, the local F&W Trooper will tell you if anyone is near you. They constantly get updates on where baits are registered and do follow up on them. Our local F&W Trooper busted quite a few last year for various reasons.

                I hope it wasnt me, but if it is, Sorry!!!!!
                I set up for the first time in 10 years. Spotted a new location and set up. I did not see any evidence of previous sites. But I guess your not suppose to.

                    I'm not worried about it that's part of the public land game. I didn't leave a trace of evidence I was there. I am very sure they saw my signs last year and beat me to the spot. They had their signs hung in the same dang tree

                      NOT around here they don't. In fact they never get out of their truck. There are still stations with (2010) 3' by 3' plywood signs from last year, that were left all winter.

                      What I find "Interesting" is that the last two times the census was taken, they had maps that showed every structure, even buildings that were moved with-in the last 6 months. I fail to see why the F&G can't advise at the time you register, "Oh, Did you know there is a 4 bedroom house just 1/4 mile from the site you want to register".......???

                        That would imply that the hunter has exact coordinates to give ADFG when they register the sattion. Often, folks simply give directions (albeit vague and inaccurate) to the station such as "walk through the woods till you get to a small clearing, turn left and walk over the hill till you get to the creek..." There's no way to plot that on a map accurately.

                          Then they need to study "Map Reading 101" However in this case the last house is at Utility Pole # 101 and there is a bait station that was set up yesterday morning at Utility Pole # 104 now the poles are roughly 300' apart so that is roughly 900' to maybe 1,000 feet. There are 5,280 feet in a mile. So this station is with-in 1/5 of a mile of five houses, one with little children.

                            Not surprising at all. Keep in mind that where folks put their bait stations, and where they tell ADFG the station is can often be two distinctly different locations.

                              Very Interesting, I had not considered that. I do wonder sometimes, the extent to which our town of "Sunrise", Alaska bear DLP problems are propagated by Bait Station's that are too close to the farms. I really don't know the answer.
