It must be getting to be that time of year...
I'm hearing numerous ads on the local radio station for bear bait for sale.

No. People are planning ahead already apparently. Far ahead. It opens after labor day. It would be nice if it opened in late August though.

My friends and I have already started talking about the upcoming season in Maine. We now have a good bait source and we can start baiting around the end of July. Lots of work to do before then.

In WI they can start training dogs and bait July 1st so I am sure that is the reason for the ads at this time.

April 15 here as well have over 2300 pounds of donuts waiting but do not put out till Labor Day weekend. 2 years ago had a bear on bait in 8 min last year had one trying to push of off bait will we were putting it out. They love them donuts plus we have used the same bait spot for years and there pretty much waiting for us to show up.

Bear hunting is so cutthroat in Wisconsin that it really doesn't make sense to bait early. Someone will come along in August jump your bait anyhow.

In Minnesota this year it's August 17th to start baiting, unless you are real real remote it's better to wait until closer to Hunting opener Sept.1 otherwise you will get bait pile burnout and someone will put out a fresh bait and the bears from your bait will be gone.

Boy is that a wilderness experience- shooting at an animal in September you have been feeding since April, and we argue over which tool to use to shoot a buck!!
