Bear Hunt Eve... Eve...

As usual, adjustments are due to progress;
Jake will be delivered to camp Saturday morjing, so solo baiting & hunting for Friday.

Running around tomorrow collecting frozen bait,
which is table scraps from my buddies 5 restaurants.
Should also have used fry oil and bacon fat too!
He say he has more than a dozen 5 gallon pails!

Picked up some marshmallows, Kool aid, maple syrup, caking icing spray and scrapage I've saved.
Neighbor has a peach tree so a few pails will be going to camp,
along with wild camp apples - MMMM-MMMMM.

Staged my equipment in the garage, gassed up the ATV & have decided on the Browning A-Bolt 12 ga instead of the pistola.
Eyes are terrible in low light so the scope is a must!

No cell service @ the camp, so chat @ you later Beasts...

Dropping Jake off and heading back through Wednesday, Hoping scent spreads and attracts other Bears!
