lol your prolly right EatDeer.. Yes deer are a lot of money, a friend of mine has i believe over 60 of them. They get top dollar for them and they are a tough to keep alive. I know they loose a lot of fawns each year, and boy is there garge full of racks.. But I still feel that they shouldnt "feed" the deer. Thats just my take. I think they shouldnt have any special privilages that we cant have. I understand its an investment and a lot of money is put into it.. But what about the poor farmers this year? Hell they were the ones that really paid for it. I think if you want to bait you should be able to bait.Not every1 has time to scout but may want to hunt. I know how it goes, school,work,kids, ect... Its tought to scout at times.But if you dont want to bait then dont bait. Myself I hunt over bait sometimes. (When I could bait.) But NOT ALL the time. I feel the need for it sometimes, and other times I dont.
