Bear Baiter’s Manual by Bernie Barringer

Bear Baiter’s Manual: Innovative Black Bear Hunting Tactics and Strategies 

by Bernie Barringer

Paperback: 224 pages

Publisher: Moving Mountain Publishing

Point: The author gives a wealth of information to help others know more about bear baiting (and hunting).

Path:  Bernie Barringer does a great job bringing the reader (even one with almost no knowledge of bear hunting or baiting- like myself), to a thorough understanding of some factors involved in baiting and hunting bears. The reader will learn more about understanding bears and their environment (I found an explanation of how bears use their senses very helpful), how to choose and prepare bait locations and what bait to use, and many other interesting and helpful things that would be involved in not only baiting but hunting bears.

There are many pictures used as a learning tool to explain concepts and help the reader to visualize specific aspects of baiting. The author includes many real life stories and examples that make the book easy to read and understand.

Although I do not have the ability to bait or hunt bears at this point in my life, I found the book very interesting and worth the read. If you are interested in baiting, hunting, or even being able to talk with someone who is interested in either of the two, I would recommend you pick this book up and read!

Stars: 5 out of 5

It would be worth another read and I would recommend it.
