Can you bait bears for hunting?
Find the Perfect Bait Site After determining it is indeed legal to bait bears where you intend to hunt, the first step in setting up a bait site is to find a suitable location. Even a bait site containing the foods bears love the most will not be very successful if it is placed improperly.
What’s the best bait to use for bear?
Bears are similar no matter where you live, but the time of year and availability of natural food affect how they respond to bait.

How do you attract black bears to hunt?
There are two objectives that you want your bait to achieve; you want it to attract bears and you want it to hold bears. When I bait to attract, I tie a beaver carcass, where legal, high on a tree trunk. The higher the better, as the scent will be carried further away. Beaver are greasy and smelly and bears love them.
Do bears like coffee grounds?
I don’t know if bears are fond of coffee itself, but if they have learned to associate the smell with other food (as campers often cook/prepare food along with coffee), they may well be attracted to it. And if you have open containers of food in a side car, yes, they will smell that.
Will bacon grease attract bears?
Getting bears to visit your bait site is the biggest hurdle of all. We deep fry a lot of fish at our house and the used vegetable oil smells pretty good to a bear, especially when mixed with bacon grease. I use about a gallon of it when I first set each bait.
How often should I bait bear?
Tips and tricks: Baits should be filled every 2-3 days when possible. You can take more time in between but if you wait too long with an empty bait, big bears will move on.
What foods attract bears?
Anything from your picnic lunch (“I only went inside for a minute”) to a sandwich crust, snacks spilled on the ground or even empty peanut shells can attract a bear. So never leave anything that looks or smells like food outside unattended. Clean up and pick up all your trash and leftovers and bring them inside.
Why do bears stop hitting baits?
The bears know where the baits are, and if they come to your bait and aren’t rewarded with food, you may lose them to another bait site and their skin will be on someone else’s wall. I will bait just frequently enough to make sure that there is always bait at the site when a bear comes. There is often a balance.
What states is it legal to bait bear?
In the U.S., 11 states allow hunting black bears over bait. Baiting is restricted to archery hunters in Utah. Other states where baiting is allowed are Alaska, Arkansas, Idaho, Maine, Michigan, Minnesota, New Hampshire, New Jersey, Wisconsin and Wyoming.
Do bears like caramel?
But if that doesn’t work, the bears in your area might have a sweet tooth. In that case, we recommend using our Caramel or Cherry scents to sweeten things up a little. Some bears prefer sweets. In that case, you can use pastries, gummies, or even jello for a quick solution.
