I really dont care for either one. I prefer hunting over killing, if I was older and couldnt get around as much it might be different. Everyone has their own preferd method of hunting, no one hunts the same and no one person is right over the next.That is what makes us people and hunters and that is why all of us learn from each other.

Legal Aspects

The white-tailed deer is defined as a game mammal in the state of Florida and as such it is protected by several statutes and rules. Some of the related illegal activities described in Florida Statute 372.99 include: 1) killing or possessing a freshly killed deer during the closed season; and 2) taking or attempting to take a deer in or out of season by use of gun and light.
Rules 39.12 and 39.13 in the Florida Administrative Code address issues such as baiting, hunting with dogs, hunting hours, bag limits, methods of taking, open season, sale of venison, tagging, and transporting.

Are you allowed to bait if you are on private land in Florida?

I know I'm going to make a few mad...but..

I don't see the difference between shooting that buck eating a mouth full of clover and winter greens that I planted...or shooting him with a mouth full of shelled corn.

I can only think of the time and money it would save me by just throwing a pile of corn on the ground 3 days before I go hunting. Compaired to preping the soil and planting and careing for the plots.

But, thats only my 2 cents.
