I agree that talking to him about it is probably the best idea. Don't go off on him just remind him that it is illegal and leave it at that. He should get the hint. I would not steal his stand. You wouldn't like it if someone stole your stuff so why do it to him...bait or no bait.

I agree with the others. Try talking to the guy or leave a note and work incrementally from there. You don't have to use the nuclear option (calling the game warden) if he gets the hint...maybe he's not even aware of the baiting rules.

There is a chance he doesn't know the no baiting rule. But regardless, you should talk to him first, explain your concerns, you never know the poor guy might be completely broke with a starving family, and a buddy that had some extra corn. Don't get the game commission involved. I'm from PA and no I don't bait, but I just hate to see the hunters turning on hunters. Try and resolve it between yourselves.

how isnt it my buisness, he set up his stand with in 50 yards of mine and is now baiting? yes definitely in for an asswhoopin if he isnt following the state games laws (sarcasm) he is making my stand illegal to hunt because of his baiting. if he wants to bait get his own land or hunt in the middle of no where, or hunt in another state.

i can completely understand that, 100%. but from talking to him once last year i don't think its the case. He talks about all the hunting he does in the surrounding counties for "the big ones" i know a lot can change in a year. I just feel like i need to talk to him about it, if its for that purpose fine by me.

2 things.

1) Pennsylvania has some of the most bizarre game laws and hunting attitudes/traditions in the country. And I say that as someone who hunts there every year.

2) In most of the country, baiting is legal.

I would assume, unless you know otherwise, that he has no idea baiting is illegal. And if you see him, ask him about it.
