Probably to big.  Try resizing them.

I like it!!  I have one bait right now getting hit by 12 to 15 crows a day, but they are only picking up the scrapes the bears are leaving behind, they are not going into the barrel.

Well, was a long weekend but mostly successful

Friday we set my uncles bait, wasn't bad cause it was my spot from last year.  Meet up with another forum member and talked, he brought me some gas. After that went to see how far up Mt we could get. Not close enough, snow stopped us. That sucked.

Saturday I went for a early walk from camp and walked up behind a wolf. That was cool but also not what a bear hunter wants to see
Spent day looking for a spot for dad. Found a killer spot, but turned out it had a tree stand close by. Looked like it was a few years old. We left that spot alone. Think we found a good spot for him.

Sunday I knew where we were going, but it was .6 miles from trail head. Long day, but think I found a good spot.  We will find out in 2 weeks
