Hmm.....well the rule is if a warden can come out there and find ANY wheat laying or just under the surface of the ground it is considered baiting. But if it is a wheat field then that is a different story. But it is a touchy subject. I would consult a local game warden on that one.

Where is that rule? I'm pretty sure it's allowed so long as its a normal agricultural practice.

I just checked with the Feds to confirm. It would be illegal to hunt geese on that field.

Yet another reason I don't hunt ducks / geese.
I would unknowingly do something wrong and pay dearly for it.

Well then I stand corrected. What is the ruling for waterfowl scn? And is it the same for resident goose season as it is for the federal season?

It is the same for the early (resident) goose season.

I'm unclear on your "ruling" question.
