 if they are that concerned about it, then they have to make the POSSESSION and SALE of mineral blocks in Illinois illegal.
 
Otherwise, those selling them, and buying them haven't done a darn thing wrong until they put them in the woods and a deer comes along.

 
Agreed.

LOL! Don't worry, the Illinois politicians will find a way to TAX it, before they ban it!

Bait - Yes
 
Hunting with a spot light isn't hunting.
 
Shining deer to see them at night - Yes. No weapons of any kind in the car.
 
Spot light, hounds, and chasing raccoons. I've never done it, but probably something to try, but who can stay up that late anymore.

living here in il. i understand the reasons for no more mineral or feed supplementation and no longer use these. why is it then that stores stock complete aisles of these products for sale?


The same reason they build fireworks stands along the border.[;)]


You can buy a rifle and ammo for it in Illinois as well, although you can't hunt deer with it here.  What's the difference? The PRODUCT isn't against the law, only the USE of it is under certain circumstances.
 

 
That's where it differs from fireworks.


Your example doesn`t address the issue that started this line of questioning.....the sale of mineral blocks when they aren`t lawful to use in Illinois.

The real point is, that just like the hunting industry, any industry will do whatever they can to increase sales and profits, regardless of legality and harm to their market.

But they ARE legal to use in Illinois....just not for deer. I have horses on my place, we use them in the pastures, and it's perfectly legal. Same with cattle. Now how you PREVENT deer form using them is a whole 'nother issue, as putting up signs would be a waste of time, as deer can't read.......
 
A .30-.06 rifle isn't legal to use for deer in Illinois either, but you can still buy one here.
 
What's the difference? To me, they would have to ban the POSSESSION of any mineral block in Illinois to make this stick. But they haven't, just the USE of them with deer.
 
It's a gray area.
[/quote] Just like you can use the high-power to hunt coyotes, but your can't use it on deer. It's kinda funny when you see someone keeping deer out of turkey feed, they put up a fence, and the deer just jump over it.  Another legal loophole.

no, no     I'm in it for the hunt and for the fair chase. I would rather fine tune my skills as a hunter and reap the rewards of my labor and know that every piece of that fine red meat that I put in my mouth and every buck that is on my wall was earned by me and my skills.
