BB: My ideal stand setup would be in thick cover, which is really important to the bears; they need to have a corridor of cover to travel through to get to the bait. Bears don't like moving through open areas in the daylight. I want my baits in thick cover, and as far as a general location, in an area where bears will find the bait quickly. Maybe it's a ridge between two marshes; an ideal site will also be near water, as bears can consume up to 20,000 calories a day, and they require a lot of water to digest that. Bears also need to cool off, they spend a lot more time in the water than most realize. If your bait is too far from water, it's less likely that the bears will show up at your bait in daylight. To recap, think thick cover, proximity to water, and a place where bears will be in the area anyway.
