We get deer walking in front of the targets all the time at our public range.

Never during hunting season. They can't be that smart?

Barnz

Keep that trail/road plowed during the late season. Plow it the day prior to hunting it. That digging-up with your plow uncovered reasons why those deer attended.

Perhaps even lay-down some small kernel food under that exact area next year, a few days prior to the first plowable snow.

I can buy a lot of bullets and propellant for the costs associated to the price of a ticket for baiting.

Same here..... mid-Michigan.

What I don't understand are all the stores that legally sell the bait inside an area where it's banned.

If I ever did bait there and was fined, I would sue Michigan's DNR for baiting me into buying it and allowing stores to sell it there.

I see small kernels everywhere here. People are doing it and because the granules are so small and we never see an officer present anywhere, they cannot stop the offenders. It's all public land here. They would need 100 officers to cover 10 square miles and we are talking about 100s and 100s of square miles of public hunting lands, between here and Upper Peninsula.

Yeah, good luck with that. Just don't to shoot a trophy buck over that bait. A $12,000 fine would hurt, BAD.

Unbelievable! You would bait illegally, and then sue the DNR for tempting you?
