Bear Bait reply [clarification of container size]

Question:

I noticed there was a question about bear baiting. It was stated that the container needs to be 55 gallon or LARGER. But in the regs it states : Containers: No bait may be contained within paper, plastic,glass, metal, wood, or other nonbiodegradable materials,
except that a single metal container with a maximum size of
55 gallons may be used if securely attached at the bait site.

I just wanted to ensure that the correct info is being released.

Answer:

You are correct.  Here is the information from the Big Game rules book:

Containers: No bait may be contained within paper, plastic, glass, metal, wood, or other nonbiodegradable materials, except that a single metal container with a maximum size of 55 gallons may be used if securely attached at the bait site.

• No bait may be contained in any excavated hole greater than 4 feet in diameter.

Thank you
