This is a topic that has been debated here several times a year every year. I would just look at the archives.

Is it just me or is there a touch of irony in a master tracker asking for advice on baiting?

Just asking.........

We should answer the Newby questions regardless.

Advantages of baiting:

I will speak for Michigan>

If you own a small plot and want to see deer and get them on a regular pattern, and put something in your freezer. Bait is the key. Also gives you a good look from a trail cam on what you have roaming around.

Dis - Bait costs money. If you are hunting over bait you are more than likely sitting in the same spot and you reduce your chances of searching out and moving in on a good buck. You may have a good buck chase a doe past your bait though. I was going to say a big mature buck in Michigan will not feed on corn over a feeder...but I saw it this year at my place. If you asked me last year I would have said never. 39 years old and 26 years in the woods and I still learn something every year. !!

I bait to get the does. Bucks hit it to, mostly at night though. I took a giant last season during our early ML season. Was on my corn for 30mins. Had bucks everywhere during shotgun season. Get the does and the bucks will be close by.

Where are going to bait? Some place like MI or WI where there is a 2 gal limit, or down south where bait is put in large quantities?
