Another crib question?

Recommended Posts

I'm expanding my range an heading north of me in no qouta about an hour one way, Once a week is all I can muster for this site an am not worried about quantity, cause I litleraly have many tons, for you once a weekers out there, what type or style or size of a crib da ya use. Or should I just make a larger version of what I use? Or dose it matter at all? when its open it's open, not much you can do about it. Or just a ground dumping. Man gotta get that barell on private land law passed. boar

The same legal description with the D.N.R.. Cribs are in the same clearing/ site. You register the "Site" not the crib or contents.

I would make one normal bait and one super heavy bait. Keeps the little bears working and allows food for the big shooter. When I say heavy bait I mean make it out of 18-20" green logs six foot long and lock them together between two trees. You want it for 400lb plus other wise it just keeps making smell until you can get back to the the smaller bait.

Hey boar, you'll be getting up in my neck of the woods the way it sounds...not where I bear hunt...but the area I live in...we bear hunt mainly north and east of Fourtown...I have hunted deer in the area's you're probably talking about all my life and there are quite a few locals that bear hunt that area...I think what you'll find is it is "similar" to hunting in big woods country...there are many wooded/swampy area's that are over 1500 acres in one chunk and some even as large as 20-30 thousand acre's...the bear density is really quite good and we have been seeing several bears on a regular basis this spring including several sows with cubs and larger boars as well....this spring I found a den that was used last winter in a logging scrap pile about 100 yards from one of our cabins! My brother took a 400 pound boar last year with his muzzy on the opening weekend about a half mile north of my mom's place and he had bears hitting his baits right up to the end of season but never had another one walk in when he was hunting...

Boar my email is [email protected]

As for compitition...if possible, we always "try" to get at least two miles from any other baits...it is harder in the western part of the no-quota area as many of the woodlots/swamps are not that terribly big...others are...but most of the locals kind of know where and why (food source), the bear are hanging out...if you're lucky enough to be able to spot where someone else "may be" hunting...you can get away from them at least a couple of miles...there's nothing worse than a bear that's hitting one, two, three baits or more...you never have a clue when they'll come in and while you're sitting there waiting for him to hit your bait some guy a half mile away has already put an arrow through him! It's hard to spot another bait on opening weekend of baiting when someone's only been there one time...but you can look for vehicle tracks pulling off the road, into logging trails, etc... And if you can get some permission on a fairly large chunk of private land you can get away from other hunters somewhat too...just make sure that the landowner assures you that you're the only bear hunter on that chunk of property...
