Honey Burn [legal as a method of baiting bears?]

Is a honey burn considered bait and would it require a permit for it? A honey burn is conducted by heating a tin can with honey in it to a boil which creates a smoke that smells of honey and attracts bears


You cannot leave the can in the woods once you leave.  Also, there may be fire restrictions and concerns on some forest areas at certain times of the year.  Otherwise, you may use burned honey for bear bait.
