whats the best way? should a guy use a sterno and heat it in a coffee can while you unt only? or should ya take a can down and heat it with a torch and leave it after its hot?

are there other things a person should use as attractants along with or instead of honey?

i see nothing in the wisconsin regs regarding burners.....anybody know if they are ok to use?

Baiting
1. Bait or feed may be placed and used
for the purpose of hunting bear or training
bear dogs statewide, except that it is
illegal for any person to place, use, or
hunt over bait or feed placed for bears:
• Beginning the day after the bear season
closes and continuing through the
following April 14th.
• In excess of 10 gallons of bait or feed
at any feeding site.
• That is not totally enclosed in a hollow log, a hole in the
ground or stump which is capped with logs, rocks or other
naturally occurring and unprocessed substances which
prevents deer from accessing the material. Liquid scent
used for hunting bear or training bear dogs does not need to
be enclosed, but is part of the 10 gallon limit.
• Unless, when the bait or feeding site is checked or re-baited,
all bait that has been uncovered is again enclosed and made
inaccessible to deer.
2. Additionally, no person may place, use or hunt over bait or
feed that:
• Contains or is contained within metal, paper, plastic, glass,
wood or other similar processed materials. This does not
apply to bait or feed placed in hollow logs or stumps or to
scent materials.
ok so the last part leads me to believe you can use honey burners. bait cant be placed in metal, paper, plastic glass etc.....but does not apply to scent materials. thats about as clear as it gets. ive got a call into the dnr but unfortunately they aren't in right now. but when they call back...ill have a better answer.
