Good pics but I would be hesitant to post such a photo where F&W GUYS CAN SEE IT . Letting them know grizz are in your baiting zone is a good way to get it shut down .For your sake I also hope he doesn't come back to your bait sites , but would be willing to bet he does .Good luck and stay safe .

On the regulations website it says:
Each bait site must have a readily observable sign legibly showing the owner's name, WIN, Big Game Outfitter-guide permit number, or Big Game Guide Designation Number.

Does that mean you cannot bait unless you are a guide? Not fully understanding it. Thanks

Don't have to be a guide or outfitter to bait , the law is just stating that signing the bait applies to them too .

Default Baiting 2015

1 stand hit by cougar, 1 by bear, no bear pics, cam in place now on that bait. Think the snow hit and put bear back to sleep.
This cougar can go away though.
