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.

Never violate a woman, nor harm a child. Do not lie, cheat or steal. These things are for lesser men. Protect the weak against the evil strong. And never allow thoughts of gain to lead you into the pursuit of evil.

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