Has anybody had a problem with cattle at their bait site? I dropped bait last night and my site looked like a that scene from dances with wolves, when they were following the huge herd of bison. Everything was torn up! Cow pies everywhere! But the bait was gone. What effect do you think the cattle will have on the effectiveness of this site?

• All bait containers and materials must be removed, and all excavations refilled no later than 7 days after the close of each season; spring, fall, or dog training. Pg 54
Dog Training lasts until July 31st in most units

Just like Mike stated, you can still bait till the end of dog training season. Dog training season ends on July 31st around here.

I am a little suprised you guys didn't know that.

Forgot about dog training season. So what are you using for bait?

Personally I don't think the cattle will have much if any negative affect on the site unless they are eating your bait.

I am just using normal stuff, like bread, popcorn doughnuts, random table scraps. The cattle are not getting into the bait they are just hanging around the site. I still have bears coming in, just not as many and not as consistent as they once were.

Jesse how did your bear taste? You going to get a rug done and/or bleach the skull? I bleached the skull of my cougar, it was fairly easy and I think it looks good.

It tasted great! I saved the back straps and then cubed up the rest for sausage and other stuff. Then I ate the back straps and wished I had saved more of it to not be ground up.

The hide had some bald spots so I didn't tan it but I am going to bleach the skull. It is still in the freezer.

Jesse, if you use bleach on your skull, make sure you neutralize the base with an acid like vinegar. If you don't, the bleach will continue to eat away at the bone. You'll find white powder and flakes that everywhere the skull sits for a while.

I've used hydrogen peroxide to good effect. You have to get the concentrated stuff though. Be carefull, it'll burn ya.

Jesse, the best method I have found is to go to the beauty supply store and but liquid hydrogen peroxide, about the strongest you can get is 40%, it looks like shampoo. Also buy powdered bleach, mix the two together until you get a paste and "paint" it on your skull, let it dry and rinse with hot water, then leave it in the sun for a day or two, it whitens them up nice.
