No and No...it's funny though joel because that is legal in NewYork state...as long as your using a nuisance permit...issued to a farmer...that is jacking the deer I'm talking about....go figure

No to shining, or jacklighting. The bait issue is up in the air. I'm sure most of us (I didn't say all of us) have baited in some shape or form. Urine, farm fields, food plots, or truck loads of feed which I'm not in favor of because it spreads disease.

If it was legal where you hunt, would you jacklight for deer?

If it was legal where you hunt, would you hunt over bait?

No
Maybe

Baiting is allowed where I hunt.  I don't do it, but I could.  I don't because I find it a waste.  There is no competing with the natural browse.  When Opening Day arrives, the acorns are still falling.  Nobody would pay attention to my offerings.  The rest of the year, I would just be feeding the coons.

Jacklighting?  If I was a serious farmer and I was getting hit hard by the deer,  I'd be tempted.  However, I am a sportsman, it's against the law, and it is not Fair Chase.

What is "jacklight"?

 
It's just like a jill-light, only it has a bigger "handle".........[:D]

No, I would not jacklight or use bait.
 
What I would consider, if it were legal, is hunting them at night, while stalking, but using natural light, like a full moon, or a full moon with SNOW COVER!!! 
 
That, just might be awesome!

That would be great, but also a little scary depending on where you live and what might also be hunting you.
