    Okay.. so I knew bird feeders were the draw, but I'm surmising from the comments bears are NOT nocturnal. So my plan to only have bird feeders out between say, 8a and 5p would't work, huh. Sucks.

    Shouldn't the potatoes go in the exhaust pipe, so they break down a half mile from the lot? I'd wrap mine in a thank you note for parking like a --what was it?-- douchenozzle.
