Using Bear Lure In PA

On a lease outside of Harrisburg where we have been seeing consistent bear sign and decided to get my bear tag this year. Question I have, what kind of bear lures are effective in PA. Friend of mine in VA gave me one of his Buck Bomb in Anise scent. I've also seen these in cake icing & hickory bacon. Wanted to get people's opinion on these as well as ideas on other options that will help bring in a bruin into bow/gun range this year.

Burk, you might want to recheck the regs. Scents and lures of any type ARE NOT legal to use for bears in pa. Hand calls are legal, electronic calls are not. To the OP, read the rule book that came with your license. You can't use that buck bomb, or any other type of scent or lure in bear season. Set up on a natural foor source, and hope for the best!

I think I'm an alright guy, I think I'm alright

A baited ARCHERY bear hunt is on my bucket list. No desire to shoot one over bait with a rifle!

If you continue to do what you're doing, you'll only get what you have gotten.

Re: Using Bear Lure In PA

The best bait for bears in PA is a trail camera, the more expensive the better. They love tearing mine off the tree and dragging it around.

A haiku is just like a normal American poem, except it doesnt rhyme and is totally stupid.
