We have been using barrels for bears a few years now and really like them, we finished this one this morning. Got any ides or suggestions for improvement? Do you have a photo of you barrel to post? I would like to see it.....
The pipe we cut to run the chains thru to hold it to a tree.
Welded a rod to keep the hole smooth so the bears would not tear up any hyde.
The pipe welded to the barrel.
We welded a small piece of square tubing on the inside so when the bear starts digging inside, the bar forces his grip to open and loose bait so it will last longer.
