Out of curiosity, do deer hunters who also fish, feel the same way about baiting and high-fenced hunts as they do about chumming (where legal) and pay lakes? I was just wondering if folks viewed the practices in the same context.

Keep your line in the water and your powder dry.

I'm not sure I understand the context of you question. I use corn, it's legal where I hunt and I wouldn't use it if it wasn't. When fishing I fish in saltwater only, and I chum because it increases the bite. In saltwater, chum brings the bite and that's what it's about.

As for high-fenced hunts, whatever floats your boat. I don't really care what another does as long as it doesn't infringe on my enjoyment of my property and it's legal. Would I hunt high-fence? Probably, but I wouldn't pay to do it. In my opinion hunting, just like fishing, is about putting food on the table, I eat everything I fish and hunt for. Hunting inside a high fence would be nothing more than hunting where I do now, shopping for groceries.

Big bucks don't usually like to feed at an unnatural food source

Bait works best in the months when deer eat food.

Im not much for baiting. But I do find I do better hunting their food post rut.

That said, I don't look down on folks that do bait their deer. Deer are professionals at staying alive. We humans are amateurs at hunting them. Even so with the folks that have spent their lives and make a living doing so.
