Bear (bird)bait
Posted by JDM on May 02 2006
Went up to the bait site last weekend with my 8yr old boy...creeks running high, log bridge washed out, snow punchy ...even with snowshoes...some mosquitoes out... eagles and ravens camped on the bait. Sure am glad I only put a paw sized hole in the lid this time.  Birds cleaned out my buddy's 30 gal. drum full of doughnuts.
Looked for brown bear in the mountians, pilot says the "down low bears are walking" ... higher bears just waking up...proved to my son that you should stay on the trail during breakup, even if you just want to look over the edge :) Had alot of fun, had him do some target practice with his pellet gun and brand new 4x  $7 Daisy scope back at the cabin. Played checkers, read books and spent some time staring at the fire. All in all another good weekend for Dad and the boy. Can't wait for the bait to go active!

Next: That's what it's all about right there Adventures May 03 2006
