On our way to Canada we hit several donut shops and ask for their discarded donuts. Should have seen some of the looks we got lol.

I used the berry powder from Boarmasters this year and it was awesome. I could smell the stuff two hundred yards away. Bearsdug a hole to get it all.

I live in va. We have bear season the same time as our whitetail season. I've hunted black bears in Canada for 15years. Now the the bears are getting plentiful in va I would like to hunt them in my county. No baiting is allowed. I would love to try using scents. Is there companies that sell any type of scents?? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

Sounds are a pretty good attractant that i have used over the years. here in b.c. we cannot use bait or scents, so i started looking into to calling them in. i've found that in late spring, a fawn bleat works best and in the fall, sometimes the bleat still calls them, but mostly a screeching prey call works best. you'll call in other predators as well so be at the ready for them.

early june this year, i called in several bear(no shots or too little for the freezer), too many yotes, couple bobs, and 2 cougars, using a call i got from J.Holden here. grunt tube that i tuned for the fawn bleat.

I don't hunt black bear. But Do a fair amount of trapping and I had to quit using fish oil at my coon sets cause I couldn't keep the bear out of them.
