    Use a mechanical timer feeder. Fill with a mix of dog food kibble/corn/sweet feed.

    Set it to go off an hour before dark. The bears will be running to it when they hear the sound.

    May also work if set to go off a half hour after daybreak. Animals are easily conditioned to timed feeders.

    Have a partner come in with you and then leave, because bears can't count.

    Use in conjunction with the stingy technique. Big greedy bear will let his greed override his caution.

      Longrifle - Good idea for deer...bad idea for bears. Bears destroy mechanical feeders. It's gotta be a pretty heavy duty feeder to survive a curious and hungry bear.

        Bioguy or the feeder must be hanging ten feet up from a heavy duty tree limb. I know bears are great tree climbers but it wouldn't be as easy to damage.

        You would need a tall step ladder hidden nearby in the bush to fill that feeder.
        Hey it is worth a try.

        Thank you all, you gave me some good tips.
