Bear, baiting not allowed in WA. Deer and elk, no more than 10 gallons with a minimum of 200 yards between bait sites. I see that going away in the near future. With our governor's fish and game commissioners, I see many hunting related activities being pushed out. With an abundance of bear and decades of spring bear hunting, that was the 1st action of new commissioners. I use a similar blend as the OP, along with salt/mineral blocks.
