I read the posts here regarding burns but I haven't seen any comments specific to this: My baits are fairly active but I have been able to refresh only every 5 or 6 days. My opener is the 3rd season, Sept 25. I might only be able to bait on the weekend prior. My trail cam shows that the bear (I think only one is hitting the bait) comes about a day after the bait is freshened. He seems to come several times over two days and then waits for another refresh. I'm considering doing a burn when I freshen the bait and hunt Thursday.

Is anyone aware opf an instance where a bear is deterred by a burn? In other words, he's never smelled it before at that sight and is wary because of that? Or do you think I should just let it burn? I would probably put some donut deep fry grease in a can over a sterno flame for the burn if I did it.
