Hello, I am fairly new to bear hunting. I drew the BC fall archery hunt. I have never hunted to BC before but will be scouting a lot this summer.

I have a good idea where to start scouting for places to bait. Any advice for that area or baiting techniques would be appreciated. I am not looking for your specific locations, just general techniques like, should I bait at the top or bottom of a canyon? What type of tree community is best to run bait? Stuff like that. Please PM if you would rather keep it private. Thanks!

All you have to do to find bears in the Book Cliffs is to go look for them. I can't remember a time that I have been hunting out there that we didn't run into them, they are everywhere. This last muzzle loader season I was talking to a hunter that said that they moved camp because of all the bears in the area that they were camping at. I saw him a couple of days later and he said that there were just as many bears where he had move to.

I know of a couple of areas that I would hunt them if I had a tag but it all depends on how much you want to hike, both of them are a good ways off of the road.

Thanks critter. I'm would like to find areas that are less disturbed so I am willing to walk.

Sent you a PM. Good luck on your hunt. You're going to have tons of fun. I should be out there deer hunting in late August.
