Now I did say in My Post that (if it's Legal) to do so in your State then that's fine because you were raised that way and that's how you Hunt. I have nothing wrong with that.
Yes I Hunt Corn Fields and Soybean and Apple Orchards, BUT here we cant put out Food for the Deer, is there a difference, not really, but that's how it is and yea I agree it's pretty much the same.
So lets get this Straight, if your Allowed to Hunt with Dogs, Fine, use Bait, Fine, I have no problem with that. But to Drive up on them on a 4 Wheeler and shoot them that's not fine (MO) if your OK with it than that's Fine too.

In the Summer Months I spend a-lot of time Vidioing Deer, YES they get used to smelling you and dont get so alarmed when they smell me when Im out there, they get used to me. And Yes by the time Archery Season arrives some of the Deer that have put up with me all Summer are used to me and take me as No Threat to them. And also During Archery Season a-lot of the Deer I see a-lot and have seen me or smelled me also take me as no threat and yes in the past it has been there downfall, they got used to me and it was there mistake.
So I'd have to say Yes they would'nt spook or spook as much, that's been My experiences.

I don't hunt in farm country. We're in a pine tree plantation area - no crops around at all. Also no oak or other mast trees to speak of. When the pines are young (first ten years after clear cut) you can't see ten feet, much less walk through them.

We put in a lot of work planting and maintaining small food plots to hunt over, and also use feeders which throw out a pound or two of corn in the morning and afternoon. It's about the only effective method in this terrain unless you want to hunt the roads. You can see the feeder out there on this half-acre plot.



Bucks don't come out on the open plots very often. But when the does are hot and feeding on the plot the bucks will sometimes show themselves.

So I ask this. What's the difference between my hunting a plot that I planted and throw corn on (with quite a bit of work and expense I might add), and you hunting a farmers field (no work/expense) that he planted and left corn on, or an oak or fruit tree that's dropping mast?
Semi, Im Not being Judgemental. I said if it's Legal where you live and Hunt than that's fine. I understand your Circumstances totally. Now just because I live in Farm Country does'nt mean it's all wide open with crop fields and woods. We have what they call (Red Brush) it grows pretty high 8-10' and is so THICK that if you died in there they'd find you standing up. Also it's so thick that sometimes you have to crawl through it just to get through it and thats a chore! Yes the Deer Love this and hide in it. We do drive it but the Deer just run circles in it. And some of the red brush go's on forever. And in the redbrush there's Briars, Wild Rose that'll Tear You apart and if you get caught in it you'll have a hard time getting out. I carry Pruining Shears with me when I go in it so if I get stuck I can cut my way out. And there's no need to bring a Gun in there if your a Driver on a Drive as you wont be able to shoot anyway, you'll have all you can do to just get out of it. So Yea we have Thick Stuff like you've never seen.
And as I said, there's NO difference in Baiting or Hunting a Planted Field, but we cant Bait but we can Hunt the Crops. I did'nt mean to and Im sure I did'nt....put anyone down for how they Hunt. I was saying that Hunting from a Moving Vehicle or stopped or wahtever just is'nt right, and that's just My Opinion and that's what My Comments were about.

Oh Semi, we also have some pretty Nasty Swamps where I live and Hunt too. The Deer love em and I tried to go into them a few times but after almost being swallowed up and not comming out I gave that Idea up. Oh and the Creeks and Deep Ravines we have them too. So it's definately not just open farm Country here, we have it all.
And Yes I did Hunt over Bait years ago in Michigan, the Upper Pininsula. And yep NO Big Bucks ever came to the Bait Piles, just small Bucks and Does. But the best part was trying to draw on them Deer when they were there, you always had some watching you and if you blinked they were gone, so I do know what it's like to Hunt over Bait and it sure was'nt easy, there anyway. Again I have nothing wrong with people Hunting over Bait or using Dogs.
We use Dogs when we Drive the (Red Brush) The Drivers are the Dogs, LOL, My One Buddy Barks just like a Beagle when we do the push. And when he comes out he's usually a Bloddy Mess from all the Wild Rose Bushes. And never wear any Good Hunting Clothes on these Drives as you get tore to SHI&! Some Guy's Refuse to go in to it.
