Here's my scenario, I am not a seasoned bear Hunter. My family and I are hunting first season Baraga. Plan is to go up the labor day weekend and start our bait sites. Then return the 9th to refresh and start hunting the 10th. I went and bought about 150 pounds of berry granola. 5 lbs of icing, probably 30lbs of fruit filling and a few other things. My family has never used much sweets. Always used tossed meat/ carcasses many years back and they complained about the smell and just general grossness of it all. So I bought the sweets. They plan in still using mostly meat that is old from the freezer. I also have quite a bit of old meat in the freezer that could really help increase my volume of available bait and also I just wouldn't mind getting rid of old meat. I have heard some guys love rotting meat and some guys say bears don't like it. What's your take on what a good strategy would be for me to use both meat and sweets. I figured I would open with sweets and a honey burn. Then while up hunting put the meat out in the hopes they are hitting it frequently enough that the meat won't go awful rancid and Chase me out and also stretch my sweet supply. How much bait do you guys like to use? Any tips or advise would be appreciated.
