uncle ted's baiting

Postby gregbuilt » Fri Dec 11, 2009 6:17 pm

long live uncle ted, one of the greatest voices for gun rights and hunting. got to tell you boys, if you disagree about baiting, then i would like to invite you to the sportsmans paradise to deer hunt during still hunting season. if you dont bait then you will be backstrapless. the deer have so much to eat and so much cover that you would beg to put some bait down and that still doesnt mean you will take deer over bait.our first frost did not arrive till the 1st of december. abundant rain in the south, short winter season, milder than normal fall had acorns still falling all the way till just this week, they finally finished. long and short of it is this, baiting does not make you less of a hunter nor does it make you a person without ethics. in our area it may not even help and then again it may. you still have to put very good deer hunting skills into action, or you may have as many tags in your pocket as you started with.

i think hunters here in mich. should have the choice to bait if they want. they banned the baiting in the lower penn. because of one inported deer with cwd in a southern county. no other deer have been found with this ailment. the dnr wants hunters to be cooperaters in haveing there deer tested. i called the regional office in gaylord mi. to see where the nearest check station was this year. we had one just 10mi. away last year but because of budget cuts the nearest one this year was in gaylord. i made a effort to take my buck to gaylord when i got there they put a caliper on the horns and ask which section it was shot in and said thats it we are not testing deer this year for tb or cwd .know does this make since not to me

Right on! I think we should be able to hunt deer over bait piles while using aircraft too! I mean, if you use a treestand or a tower it's the same thing, you're elevated, so what's the difference? Choppers with red spotlights would make for great night hunting, as the deer cannot detect red light.

HA, HA, HA?  Who said I was kidding? I'm serious as a heart attack here.
 
If an oak tree, or an apple tree, or a scent lure or decoy is no different than a bait pile or feeder, then a helicopter or an airplane is no different than a treestand or tower. You are hunting from an elevated perch either way.

Interesting comparison. Instead of still hunting we could run them down with our ATVs or pickups too!

new reply to uncle teds feelings on baiting. In MO. it is baiting to collect acorns from one tree and put them out under a new tree  you cannot rake them up under same tree. On another note something all hunters should be aware of recently in MO. some hunters were arrested and charged with a federal conspiracy to kill a deer in mark twain national forest. The hunters were handcuff and shackle, made to strip down to underware and transported 3 hrs to be charged with a  misdemeanor. then released to find their way home. they  were not allowed to bring money,credit card.This is just one more step up ladder to communism.This is abuse of authority and the law. There were 8 men not connected in any way.The tax payers payed for 16 agents to escort them to appear before a judge. The next thing it will be a federal conspiracy if you break the the speed limit on a US highway

If you knowingly break the law then you should be charged. There is more to the story than your letting on like the poachers using wideband radios to evade law enforcement and the poachers using radio collared dogs. You can read the full story here..

I've baited. It worked, but I felt like I wasn't hunting. I took three deer this year without baiting.

Hey just wanted to add my two cents to this whole deer baiting issue. In portions of Pennsylvania around Pittsburgh and Philly the game commision recently voted to use contraceptives to manage the deer herd. Now as far as i am concerned this is a very high level of human interference in nature not to mention what is sure the be expensive for a commision that is already have financial problems. If baiting is as effective as the the people who are against it say it is then this would be a great cheap way to let hunters control the herd and not through some drug with uncertian long term effects.
