    A seasons greeting for Bear Baiters. I look forward to hearing of all of your exploits, good and bad. Wishing each of you a safe and successful season this spring.

    Here's wishing I could get out and set up the station. Still waist deep (or deeper in places) out here. And below freezing so far today. Sigh :cool:

          LC, is that you?

          You little sissy. Hey, good to hear from you. And if it is not LC, then sorry, you might still be a sissy?:eek:
          Chena is breaking up. Friends are saying the Tanana has a few holes, but we/you/they won't be running the Tanana until my guess is May 12. Ok, you heard it hear.

            I went flying on sunday. The tanana was still looking really solid. May 12th probably isn't a bad gues.

              Sissy

              Is that just because I had to put a heater in my boat(lol). I'll be home on the 23rd and will have two weeks to get my bait down river, be it snowmachine or boat. I finished up my new boat last time home. Full UHMW on bottom, Espar, GPS, VHF, and smartcraft. The UHMW was a big job but it turned out nice thanks to Mikes guidance. If I get to at least put it in the Chena I'll swing by and let you have a look. LC

                reg changes

                was reading up on the new changes and if I am not mistaken we get to keep baiting until June 30 this year instead of the 15th. Has anyone else seen this or was it a matter of reading through the beer goggles.

                  We're putting our barrel in tonight, should we bait it or wait a couple weeks? What do you guys think?

                    I should have clarified that we are in unit 7. Pike place I would put the bait in with the barrel if you can get it there. Never know if you will get a early riser to come along. We are putting ours in this Saturday, usually a bunch of snow still to slog through but every so often we hit a early bear licking his lips.

                      Correct as I understand it.

                        unless other wise stated... all the reg changes DO NOT take affect until the First of JUlY... YOU are operating under the CURRENT BOOK AS IT READS!!!!!!!!!!!!

                        you must/should/ contact F&G prior to assuming any changes in the regs are now in effect.

                        or you can/will be sited...

                        and DO NOT take the advice of the college kid sitting in the front desk area

                            If you read the new regulations, you will note that certain ones are going into effect early and some late. The baiting extention is for the current year, certain changes to hunts already drawn for are not till 2010.

                            Look at the ADFG website for more info. Read the summaries of the new changes, you will see what I mean.

                              Bad news

                              It looks like this will be a repeat of last year.:mad:!!! I've been bear baiting in Unit 16 for four year and I had never been as frustrated as i was last year. Went up this morning and their was still at leats four feet of snow!!! About the same amount as last year at this time and i diddnt get my first hit untell May 20th. Know need too spend the time and money to go up there untell the first or second week of may.
