It's easy to kill a duck, but hard to avoid the ticket. They were writing them up last year, and it was the FEDERAL man, not the NC GW.
There's not much you can do about it, and you don't have any way of knowing if the birds you're shooting are in route to bait or not.

A Federal GW can use his descretion as to how many yards you have to be from a baited area. You can be 1/2 a mile, and if he feels that your birds were taken from a flight zone to a baited area; it's ticket time.

Luckily im good friends with most of the guides down there and know them pretty good so i dont really have to worry too much about the bait problems but i have seen what happens when someone is hunting on the property that a guide has to hunt :laughing:

Last year it was the guides customers who got the tickets. :umm:
I think the guide felt that since he was so far from the bait it wouldn't be illegal.
That's when the state GW called the Federal man to come down and use his "descretion"
Have fun guys, and good luck. (With the ducks as well as the bait dodging)

There is bait in the area. Its not as heavy over that way as it is in West bay and North bay. Most of the baiters are not using corn anymore. They're using milo and other grains that are harder to spot from the air. I wouldn't worry about it, I'd just go hunt. You will be able to tell if there's bait once the birds start flying. They will all make a B-line for the bait pile.
