I have never baited deer to hunt them, have no interest of ever doing so. With that said i dont think baiting is much of a factor at all in the Southeast, whether legal or illegal. I dont see it changing much of anything from a hunting standpoint, and its obviously not very harmful to the herd, as KY and many more states have allowed it for decades with no real problems for their deer herds!

No,one bag of corn is not near as much food per week as even a small food plot


You have a magic corn food plot that produces corn 52 weeks out of the year?

So what about 2 bags per week? 3? I'm pretty sure my point still stands.
No,but my clover plots produces pretty much year round

Guess this got lost in the process,but this thread was about fee for baiting,and wether that was enforceable or not.I dont think so.

Fee for baiting. Would you pay a fee to feed the birds in your yard. Would you pay a fee to put some corn in front of your trail cameras in the off season. WAY to many if's and buts to be enforceable.

Same thing for the difference in food plots and putting out corn piles. You can not make food plots illegal. Then you could never hunt on or around a planted corn or soybean field. that would make no sense. However there is a large advantage of having a food plot vs not having a food plot.

You dump out a pile of corn and all the deer are eating in a 2 or 3 square foot area - NO GOOD -

Plant a plot - 5 acres say, and deer 'graze' naturally - less chance of the transmission of any available germs - bTB - EHD etc -

Now - if you want to carry out your bag(s) of corn and spread them over a large area - 5 acres say - cool -

Maybe the 'solution' to this argument is to limit the size, that is establish a minimum size of what a 'food plot' must be -

ferg....

And wouldn't a Trophy Rock be the same thing or salt lick?
