It is not legal in NY. No, I dont. (baiting is considered anything- food, molasses, salt, that a deer can ingest...not hunting over an established crop or natural food source).
It seems to me baiting turns hunting into just shooting... hardly a show of skill or sportsmanship.

Not legal in Il for any reason!!!!!!! Can't even use it before or after season for trail cam's. Can't even put out hay/feed for severe winter conditions legally.

Down here in the southeast baiting is legal, and many of us do it. I think it fully depends on the situation that the hunter is in. Many people are in hunting clubs with limited amount of land, and your designated area may not be the best.

To each his own I guess.

Ala. --- loose feed bait not allowed. Includes any "deer block", pellet, or other attractant that contains a food item. We can hunt over agriculture fields.

Can also plant and hunt over these food plots. This is the usual practice.

Default baiting

It is very easy even if it illegal

Use rape seed and sugar beet seeds

Deer love it and and no maintenance

Works like magic for me.

yes. i probably put out 2,000 or more pounds of corn a year i put out a couple 100 pounds out today while i was trimming stands and running cams. i will make one more outing to put out fresh corn and trim out a couple more stands out right before the start of bow season. then i will go out once every week or week in a half to put fresh corn out. i usually stop just right before the rut starts then i will start back up again after the rut ends and continue until deer season is over.
