What is a "Crib" around a bear bait barrel

>>THE CRIB< A crib around the barrel is a pile or stack of stick, logs brush, etc that forces the bears around the front side of the barrel.  Without a crib we have had several bears sit behind the barrel and reach around the barrel to grab food from the ground or inside the barrel, the crib will keep the bear from doing this.  it also helps protect the bait from small scavengers and birds which eat a lot of food when the bear is not around. Place your barrel, treestand and crib wisely and you’ll get the quartering away

Too Hot to Rut? – Elk Hunting “Outside the Box” by Chad Baart Dreams of elk hunting often include high mountain meadows with heart stopping bugles piercing through the frosty air. These are the times that we often think of when it comes to elk hunting. A time when the majestic elk break from their bachelor groups in search of their own harems.
