    Potatoes and Bear

    I was wondering if anyone has ever used potatoes for bear bait? Fresh or rotting? I have access to quite a bit and was wondering if it would be worth my time.

    Thanks,

    I was expecting this to be about a bear stew recipe. LOL

    I've never heard of anyone trying that but there's one way to find out! My guess is if you pour syrup or honey over it they'll devour it anyway even if they don't like it much. I've had them pull out plain, dry pieces of bread. But, if I put something sweet on it, that's a different story.

    You can tell where my mind is today. I read... "Potatoes and BEER" and immediately clicked on the thread.

    Bear Beer Beer Bear Bare Beer! How about beer with bear and potatoes. Or we could drink beer while we wait for the bear to come eat potatoes.

    I have no idea if a Bear would eat potatoes or drink Beer.

    I don't know if they eat potatoes or drink beer either.....but I sure do!!

    Honestly....potatoes have a pungent odor as they age, it could possibly work. Good luck to the OP, what ever you decide to try.

    I do know they drink beer because I know of one that has raided a cooler and punctured all the beer cans.

    Anyways, I'm thinking about trying the potatoes to see if they work because I can't find anyone with any information on the fact.

    Thanks,
