Wondering if I'm able to shoot a bear over my elk carcass during Colorado 2nd rifle on public land. Is it considered baiting? What about another carcass I may come across? I would think baiting would constitute an intentional act of bringing an attractant into the woods for the sole purpose of attracting game. I would think this situation would pose a excellent opportunity however I certainly don't want to violate any laws and plan on purchasing a bear tag if by chance a bruin makes an appearance. If it is illegal how far does one have to be from the carcass to remain legal? I've seen some video's of Alaska hunts where bruins are take over various carcasses but not sure about Colorado.
