Default Do you hunt over Bait?

Do you hunt over bait? I hunt over corn I don't think it will effect a big mature buck. I have not ever seen a big buck some in to corn in daylight.

I call it a lure. My method contradicts all I have heard. Found it by accident. My wife and I spend time in areas without a bathroom. She had to urinate and I said just pull you pants down and go there. A week later there was buck rubs and scrapes all over the exact spot. Works most the time for her ,but not my urine. Over the years I have polished the method by using used sanitary napkins.

Baiting is illegal in Indiana, including mineral licks and attractant products that the deer can consume. Yes, even Trophy Rock.

Baiting is illegal in MA... i will hunt over apple trees, but nothing that is not naturally there. I do hunt over food plots out of state sometimes.
I see nothing wrong with it... just cannot do it here...

Same here in Illinois. Except I don't believe a "food plot" is considered baiting. I do hunt near food plots. Just my opinion though.

We almost went 3 months without this topic coming up....I was thinking we might make it to 4 this time! Im guessing this time it will only make it to 7 pages and 2 fights break out!

No baiting here. I do bow hunt around apple trees when thereare apples. Rifle hunting is in the big woods and there aren't fields or apple trees within many miles. Best results are to track them down and /or set up ambush points using natural terrain.

If it's legal and you want to hunt over corn, then do it. Don't worry what anybody else thinks. They have their way of hunting and you have yours. If it's illegal, then don't do it.
