Default Baiting Deer in PA

I havent been seeing much activity in my usual treestand this year and i was thinking of putting out some apples coated in honey to try and get more movement infront of my stand. I was just curious if it was legal and what you would suggest in terms of bait.

From the Game Commission Digest

Taking Advantage of Food or Bait: It is unlawful to hunt in or around any area where artificial or natural bait, food, hay, grain, fruit, nuts, salt, chemicals or minerals, including their residues, are used or have been used within the past 30 days as an enticement to lure game or wildlife regardless of the type or quantity. Hunters should remember that they are responsible for ensuring that the hunting area has not been baited before they begin hunting. They should physically inspect the area and question landowners, guides and caretakers. Decoys simulating food is considered artificial bait. Examples: artificial corn, using a turkey decoy to attract coyotes.
