RE: BAITING IN PA for deer
I hunted on bait once when I lived in MI. After 1st morning they went nocturnal. These people bring in trailer trucks of pumpkins, corn, sugar beets and it is a cash crop of some signifigance..But I liked it as I was able to get in between the bedding areas in the swamps and the bait stations. It is also implicated in spreading the bovine TB, CWDand other diseases. No, baiting is not being a sportsperson!
Others would suggest that a food plot is baiting? That includes fruit trees, legumes etc. I don't think it is but guys in my camp claim unless it is a legitamated farming operation you can get pinched.
Is a salt block or mineral lick bait? I know people who have been pinched for this "baiting violation" Okay boys let's hear it it!!
