Love this annual thread also. I can't remember if you got a bear last year or not?

I passed on a few mid sized and smaller bears.  Nothing big enough.

I've never baited bears nor hunted bears over bait, but I always really enjoy following this.
:yeah:
Pain is temporary, achieving the goal is worth it.

I didn't say it would be easy, I said it would be worth it.

I also enjoy your Bear Baiting thread.
I can remember doing it here in Washington when I was a kid.
Goodluck to you and your adventures. 👌

Finally got some bait in my barrel yesterday.  You know it really sucks to face plant, but I can tell you it is even less fun doing a gravity check with 55 pounds of bait strapped to your back and carrying two 40 pound pails of peanut butter and catching a toe on the downhill trail to your bear bait.  That is a real bitch trying to get back up once you assess nothing is broken!!   :chuckle:

In that one photo he almost looks like a gorilla, maybe a cinnamon squatch?  :chuckle:
