Who can bait and for what?

Who can not bait?

Here in PA, We can not bait, but we can Plant seeds and let them grow out in the Middle of NO WERE and hunt over it aslong as we do not Disturb the plants to make the Seeds fall to the ground faster or Knock Down corn and such.

What do you other guys have in the way of Baiting?

What can you bait and with what?

here what you plant needs to be part of regular farming. a farmer can (and many do) plant crops for dove if he farms them. and there are many places that cattle feed is all over the ground but it is for cattle, but the doves come to it like mad.

we can bait here in parts of SC for deer/hogs. in the county i live in, on private land you can bait on public you can't. you can also hunt fields used for agricultural farming for just about anything that will eat it. i believe that you can plant fields for dove, etc. as long as you turn them under a certain amount of time before you hunt them.

Legal here. The only thing that I can say that might be a problem, is that we now have cronic wasting disease (CWD) here, and by baiting deer, the DNR believes that concentrating deer in one area (bait pile) may actually spread the disease.

no legal baiting here that i am aware of. it was recently passed into law that we cannot even hunt bears over bait any longer.

no bait...no dogs.. the bears and cougars are having an easy time of it around these parts.

We have to hunt bears over bait except during deer season and we can bait for deer if we so wish.

Keep takin those shooting lessons, I think they're helping cause your starting to get some tail feathers.

baiting is not hunting in my opinion......but I guess that some peeps do whatever they can to get a deer.....I especially have disdain for the numerous TV shows showing corn littered roads attracting deer, or a box blind sitting 50 yards from a spreader.......that is sooooo bogus IMO

I also do not feel that planting crops or other food plots specifically for wildlife is appropriate....deer need to survive and grow on their own.....seems some folks make too much of a deal about antler size.....why don't they just manage the herd appropriately by not taking young bucks?

Don't worry, deer do fine on their own despite food plots. If you ever hunt over one, you will quickly see that it is by no means a sure thing. It isn't really any different than hunting over a stand of productive oaks. Back to the original question, the only thing that you can legally bait in GA is fish.

Something a Game Warden told me once upon a time... he had busted some guys for "baiting" & that was their answer at trial. :withstupid:

If any of ya'll are goin' to "plant" seeding plants to "enhance the habitat" be sure to check you local game laws & with the Game Warden... can save you alot of headaches, fines & losin' your huntin' rights later on. :hammering:

In Maryland we can bait for every thing except Turkey and Waterfowl, and I do. Managing the herd is fine but when you hunt a state that your average lease size is less than 250 acres it is kinda tough. It's not like you can go roaming a thousand or so acres and pick your perfect spot. You have to bring the deer to you and it's no cake walk. Do not mistake that I am making excuses for what I do if I had thousand acres to hunt I would just use more corn. Unless you are riding you horse from start to finish on your hunt and using all natural camo with no GPS no store bought cover sent or fancy pac boots just you your horse and your hand made hickory bow you have no right to put anyone else down. Everyone is intitled to there opinion this is mine IF IT'S LEAGAL GO FOR IT.
