look through your paper for a free or nearly free horse. They work great. Also try making sucker in a bucket for them it will keep them at the sight for a while.

What ever you can find that is cheap or free, sweet or an odor that they like. Anise oil, fish oil, burnt honey, or vanilla. (dog food and syrup works good too)

To get more of them coming in to the bait you can make a lick stick and use bacon and sasuage grease in it. When we could bait here it worked very well.

To make one get a piece of 2-2 1/5" black iron pipe threaded on both ends and two caps, drill 3 or 4 holes in it 1/16" dia. at the bottom and around the center of it, weld a length of chin at the top of the pipe (chain wrapped around a tree next to your bait and locked it so it dosen't walk away) grease will melt and leak out holes in the day frim up at night, bears will get it on the pads of thier feet and leave scent trails that others will follow in to your bait.
