  • Getting bear to your bait in the first place.

    How do you guys get your bears to come to a new stand? My bait is popcorn, bacon grease, syrup, and some super sweet coon lure that I made on a trip down to Oregon.

    It don't smell a whole lot, so I was thinking getting some of that "bear bomb: anise oil" stuff next time we go to town, what do you think?

    any help is apprectited


    there are no other baiters for a long ways, and ton of bears eather (hence no baiters) and it is on top of a small rolling hill.


    Thanks!

    Sounds like you have things set up just right. Just sit back and wait! The first year takes a little while, but once they start coming you will be surprised! I put in a new stand last spring and had 11 bears come in one evening. It just takes time. Stands usually get better with time also as those bears will remember every spring where that food was!

      Use lots of scent the key is getting as much scent out in the air as you can. DO NOT USE BEAR BOMB!!!! those things are a waste of money.

        Check out Bait'em 907's website and buy some of their products; they work! After that, just wait.. sooner or later something will happen.

          Yes jess's bait (Bait em 907) is some potent stuff! I have 2 scent balls at my station and am going back to pick up some more stuff since my stand is also a "New" site for them to feed on. Good luck this year!

            Do I give my friends advice? Jesus, no. They wouldn't take advice from me. Nobody should take advice from me. I haven't got a clue about anything..

              Scent. Scent. And more scent. They will come.

                A five gallon bucket with stinky stuff hanging way high in a tree. Bacon greese in front of the bait it will stick to the first bears feet and drag the smell with it.

                  We used to burn grease in a coffee can w/ a plumbers torch. We'd end up with a big cloud of grease smoke heading whichever way the wind was blowing. Back in those days I did not hang a stink bucket, but do so now, and no longer do grease burns.
                  Note to self, be careful w/ grease burns in dry conditions. Hauling 5 gallon buckets of water several hundred yards to fix a mistake is no fun.

                    I used to keep all my fish heads and guts in a five gallon bucket, seal it and let it sit through the fall and winter, crack it open at my stand in the spring and hoist it up, the smell is unbearable (no pun intended). Grease in front of barrel and under a spot were I put honey (when the bear stands to get the honey my trail cam usually gets a picture and allows me to judge their size). I don't use smell much now since the site has been there awhile and the bears show up every spring.

                      I almost did this last year but was concerned attracting browns more than blacks. What's your experience been? BTW - nice trail cam pics!

                        Never had a grizzly while using this method the first two years I set this stand up, then last year no scent and only sweet type baits I had a young grizzly come in, he stayed about two or three days and left. I want to believe it is my stand placement, but know that at the time it was more than likely luck.

                          Scent is the key factor. Once the bears find your station keep replenishing the bait.
                          Mix up some sweet smelly concoctions and they will be back.

                            I soak sanitary products in annise & hang them up in the trees where they will catch the wind. Also use as spray bottle and spread the scent around on the leaves for the wind to catch. Dripping syrup on the ground to be tracked around and out to the field helps. F&G may want you to clean up the ground if they think you have left a mess in the dirt though.

                              I used to use a couple of chickens and some beaver castor, and a gallon of water in a bucket sealed tight. About the time it all turns to gravy, is the time to use it. caution however you may also leave some chum of your own as you open that pale.
