Just use wood, rocks, or rope to secure it. No metal.... chain, cable, bolts, etc.

Not really anything to do with bear hunting but I had to post it.

I know pretty much everybody up here in AK swears by jello popcorn and a honeyburn when you are going to sit in the stand. Figuring out a way to make the popcorn hard to reach can help with how long the bait lasts, but without a good steel barrel that is tough to figure out. Maybe a plywood contraption held together with serious industrial glue or epoxy?

The light weight nature of the popcorn sure makes for an easier pack in! Plus, you can buy a giant bag of kernels and a dozen boxes of jello for a few bucks. That plus a big pot and an outdoor stove can make enough bait to last a season in an afternoon without breaking the wallet. Bring a small backpacking stove and a junk pot from DI with you when you go to sit in the stand and slowly caramelize/burn real honey.

Good luck and I hope to see some great pictures in a few months! I know there are some good numbers of bears on that unit based on what we ran into on my dad's goat hunt a few years ago. Beautiful country, and I wish I had spent more time getting to know that area better.
