baiting

Postby Zack87 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 12:47 pm

I'm thinking of setting up a bait sight on private land now. It's sept 4 and the season opens in nov. is it too late? I haven't done any scouting on this private land so I'm not sure what to think or use. Any help.

What will you be baiting?

Be aware of your state laws, doesn't matter whether it's private land or not, in most states the Wildlife Conservation Officers/Game wardens/whatever other new name they have don't have to follow the exact same regulations on probable cause or search warrants other law enforcement agencies do.

States vary on baiting, in PA a salt lick is considered baiting and is illegal while in MD it's legal to shoot over one.

Definately not to late. If you are dumping it on the ground then anything like milo/corn/rice bran(my favorite) will work as long as there is sign in the area. You have to scout a little before you start putting it out because if the deer aren't using the area already then you will just be feeding the coons

I usually try to start at least a couple of weeks before the season, but it is never too late.
