After a kill at a bait site

Recommended Posts

north red river

Ok so I got a bear at the one bait site I had which had been getting hit everyday....now that i've killed one on the site it hasn't got hit since. Is this normal? If so how far away should I start another site being i've had 4-6 bears coming in?

well that depends on how much property you have. i normally keep my baits about one mile apart. If that is not possible try moving the bait a couple of hundered yards and try a test bait. Or look for travel areas like funnels of pinch points. Also was the bear dressed out right at the bait site or did you dress it else where?

if ya move do a scent drag with a gunny sack full bread or dog food soaked in grease or mollasses an drag it from the frist site to the new one, so they can key in on the new site alot faster. Boar

It was dressed about 300 yards away out of the woods in a open field. All I have is a 1 mile square section to hunt and I like to be at least a half mile of the tar road so it kinda limits my options.

Well I do agree then with starting a new bait and doing a scent drag to lead the bears there. No it has also been real warm lately and maybe when the weather cools down a bit the baits will be hit some more.

It will take back off, it usually takes a few days or up to a week. If it don't pick up after that, then it would pay to move it. Even if you only move it a few yards sometimes is more than sufficient.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
