Bear calling works! I've called in quit a few. We don't have a spring season here BUT these bears were called in in the spring. If I can find them I have a few pics of a bear I called in for a buddy that shot it with a rifle in the fall.

That is really funny. I wish you had a close up of that bear's face when he ground to a halt and the "fawn/dinner" didn't take off. that is awesome.

So what happens if I set up a stove and cook up some bacon and eggs for MY breakfast ?

Is that baiting too ?

Which states allow scents but not baits? I never heard of such a thing.
Thanks for your time!

New York allows scents but not bait. Your scents cannot turn something into food. So like bacon grease poured onto sawdust would not be ok. But grease and jello powder burned would be ok I thnk.

Washington also is a NO bait state, BUT you can use scent and calls.

Baiting is legal here in Alaska. You first must take a class and now it is offered online aswell. Then you have to submit the coordinates of bait station to Fish & Game.

Bears are very plentiful here and some units residents can harvest one a day year-round. Two of my firends here have harvested black bear with the use of mouth calls. Electronic calls are illegal for bear.

While working on Kodiak Island I have used my digital Foxpro call for fox hunting and have called in brown bears twice, one from a boat and a sow and two larger cubs while sitting on the hood of my truck at dusk. Amazing how stealthy animals this size can just appear before you.

As moose populations are down in unit 15 next year they will allow for the taking of one brown bear by use of bait. For safety reasons the meat must be salvaged.

Calls work well on bears and snowshoe hare in distress is all I've ever used.
