Wisconsin Bear Hunting
No doubt bears will eat shelled corn but I'd suggest not using molasses. From what I've seen, it's not good on the bears' gut. I'd steer you toward some type of jelly or fruit topping.
You can even cook up a Kool-Aid and sugar mix (youtube it)that will help make the corn more appealing.
Good luck this Fall,
Daughter had 7 points in zone D... She drew her tag and will transfer it to her 13 year old son. We have a cabin in Douglas Co. with 13 acres... next to a vast amount of county forrest land. I harvested a bear in 2011. My wife filled her tag in 2013. Neither of these two were braggers, but you can not beat a successful - self guided hunt -on your own property. I think i am more excited for Sept. 5th to get here than my grandson. He loves to hunt. He shot a 10pt buck last fall, but is worried about missing a football practice or game while bear hunting. We have to travel 330 miles to get to the cabin, so he will have to miss about three days of school and sports. It will be worth it for the memories he will gain!!!
