Basically if you legalize baiting for deer, you have to legalize it for squirrel, turkey and bear.

You also have to factor in counties with low deer populations.

I don't really see why you would have to go that far as to legalize it for squirrel and turkeys. I know in most places baiting bear is legal I have no idea if it is in tn never hunted bear in tn. it don't matter to much to me u just don't see a good reason not to. but if they do or if they don't I don't really care honestly

The use of bait for deer hunting is one reason south carolina does not have a fall turkey season.

"Third, hunting deer with bait is unrestricted in the 28 county coastal plain of the state and baiting deer is a practice that is not only common, it is the norm. It is unlawful to hunt turkeys with the use or aid of bait and hunters understand that deer bait must be removed prior to the spring turkey season. Killing turkeys indiscriminately and with bait was a primary cause for the decline in turkey numbers by the 1940s. Not only would the presence of deer bait during a fall turkey season be a dilemma from a law enforcement standpoint, to open a fall turkey season when deer baiting is ongoing and not expect turkeys to be shot over bait is simply not realistic. "

http://www.dnr.sc.gov/wildlife/turkey/fallseason.html

People need to keep in mind that allowing baiting for deer will have an impact on fall turkey hunting. Are we willing to give up a fall season the way South Carolina did? They tried it and realized baiting for deer was problematic. It is one reason they do not have a fall season now.

Not sure how the DNR would regulate the practice. Baiting would take away our fall turkey hunt. Bagging a bird during archery season was one successful hunt for me this year. Having taken a few with SG, the bow shot has been my most rewarding …… “bragging rights”. I’m in the NO baiting group.

X2! They already trying to get people to do it! Why else would walmart sell deer corn during deer season!
