  2. A little further south, at standish

    and there is an elevator in pinconning that also handles bear feed, However I havent been able to get any prices from him.

  3. Bait Question...

    Never Bear hunted but thinking about it since I'm now in Bear Country.
    Seen several and even had a load of chit near the back trail a while back.
    Neighbor had his grill tore apart when one must have been after the grease drippings. They get into bird feeders a lot also.

    Most everyone seems to use sweets, breads etc.
    Don't they eat carrion also?
    What if I gathered a few dozen dead Salmon along the creek behind the house and put them in one pile or a barrel to watch over?
    1. Legal?
    2. Effective?
    3. Best daylight times to monitor, Dawn, Dusk?
  4. Here's a link to the supplier in Pinconning. They are located at the old grain elevator.

    There is also a supplier in Rapid River on Saturdays plus another one located in Wallace. I'll see if I can find their phone numbers.
  5. I've heard of a supplier in the Grand Rapids areas that sells granola mix that some successful hunters of used. Sorry, but I don't know the place or phone number.

    If processed its OK

    We were told that my sister in-law couldn't use pop corn last year.
    2 CO's told my brother and I that cooked popcorn was ok with them. My sister didn't beleive us, so she called one of them and confirmed it.

    Probably a case of this CO will write you up and the next one wont.

    "From the start of the legal bear-baiting period through the end of bear-hunting season, bear hunters may use up to two gallons of grains per bait station, provided the bait is made inaccessible to deer and elk. It is illegal to use grains in counties closed to deer and elk feeding and deer baiting (currently the entire Lower Peninsula)."

    Copied and Pasted from DNR sight. So, two gallons in a hollow stump or pit covered with logs should do it. Right?
  10. It is in Byron Center. 616 878-4230

    Best thing to do is to contact the CO in the area you will be hunting.
