i got a tag this year for bear hunting and i amm looking for some advice. i am wondering wear i should bait on my land. the last 2 years i have had a friend and a family member hunt the same stand and both have seen bear and got them on the trail camera at the same stand. my dad thinks that i should hunt on the other side of the land which is across a fairly messy swamp. do bears really travel that far and through that much just to get food. any advice is greatly appreciated. thanks. notice the screen name. that is literally the spot that the bear have been seen and that is not a joke. the spot is called bearhill and that is the name of the road we r closest to.

Just pics from the yard at the cabin, I am assuming a neighbor has started a bait pile near cuz they have been moving through. No tags this year but always fun to see them passing through

Started 3 baits 2 weeks ago and 2 of them are baits from past years,they were hit within 24 hrs,one in 4 hrs. The 3rd was a new bait and it was hit the 3rd day by the bear pictured,so far so good

I like when sitters go first only because hopefully acorns and berries are not in full force drop mode. One week can make a difference sometimes.

Any thoughts on whether it is better to hunt over bait in the year where bait hunters start first or when bait hunting follows the dog hunting start?  I live down state and would most likely use a guide/outfitting service.

Wolves are endangered, there can’t b that many in the state.  Can’t imagine wolves could be a contributing factor.

You can partially blame the lower kill rate on the big  acorn crop this year. But a comment that has been mentioned many times on the  Facebook site and from bear hunters I know is that the bear population is down. Many guys have mentioned hardly any cubs which doesn't bode well for the future. One common complaint is the wolves hanging around bear baits. Bears open up the baits and the wolves run the bears off and eat the bait. Guys are saying wolves ate more bait than the bears at times and that they are pretty sure also that  the wolves are liking the taste of greasy bear meat now !!
