wondering where the best place to get a 50 gal plastic drum for bear bait? I see lots of guys use them and thought it might be best to do the same.

Car washes get a lot of their soaps in plastic drums.

You can get a barrel full of bait, which comes with a locking ring. Get 3 barrels of bait you have 3 plastic bait barrels. Cambridge MN.

hitman, I see you are from MN. Not legal to use bait barrels for baiting in MN.

Not true, you can use barrels on private property.

Maybe it's because of all the aviation in the area, or being close to a huge shipping port... but barrels seemingly grow on trees around here. I have 6 barrels left that haven't been destroyed yet. I'm not entirely sure metal lasts any longer though, Once smashed, they are done, plastic can be popped back out a lot of the time. I guess up here it's a lot different with 9 ft brown bears visiting the same site however.

You are correct Grubby. However, over 90% of the baiting in MN is on public land and barrels are not legal there.

I am on private and was told that I can use Barrels. I am a first timer and want to make sure I am legal. Are you 100% sure I can use them on private land?
