No, 2 different things entirely. food plots are 100% legal. baiting is illegal, as it should be everywhere.

Deerslayer, tell me again the difference between hunting a baited area by using a food plot, hunting a baited area by hunting an uncut or cut corn field, and hunting a baited area by spreading corn on a sendero? All these areas are places that have been altered. In the case of the food plot and the corn salted sendero, and an uncut corn field, none are normal agricultural activities. In other words you are hunting over a baited area. Is there a difference in your mind between hunting a corn fed area and hunting a field full of biologic clover?? Please explain why one is ok in your mind and the other dispicable.

I was talking to an Alabama game warden Saturday about this subject. It is technically illegal to plant a food plot and hunt over it in Alabama, but it isn't enforced. Food plots aren't considered a agriculture crop.

i guess it depends on where in alabama you are talking about. I live in north bama and it is perfectly legal to hunt over a food plot, but you can't hunt over a feeder. You can hunt on a salt block but can't hunt on a mineral block. I don't know who comes up with these rules, i just follow them. To me it is all the same thing, but i have no problem hunting over a manmade clover field.

Please haul your butt out to my lease in the chihuahuan desert and plant me a food plot. If you can get it to grow I will never again feed corn.

planting is baiting. period. just because it takes more work to get what you want doesn't justify it. by the way, i am planting in a semi-shaded are this spring, any thoughts on what to put in here in vt? ( it's in the woods, small opening maybe 1000-1500sq. ft)
