Well decided to use the zodiac instead of the canoe - at least for the initial setup. 1200 lbs of bait set out on Saturday would have required at least two trips even with the big canoe and 4 miles each way would have meant 16 miles of paddling with 8 of those pretty loaded. As you can see from the boat the trail in was a bit dusty.

Also sourced a new source of bait at the last minute. Honey coated granola mixed with chocolate chips as much as I could take for a whopping $0.08/lb taxes in. Buddy and i took a trailer down and drove off with 5,000 lbs to split between 4 of us.

The stuff is awesome. I didn't bring any food and was out for 10 hours - just ate handfuls of the bear bait.
