I heard a rumor from a friend today.. He had heard that they just put a ban on baiting in the UP.. I looked on the MIDNR site and couldnt find anything. I was wondering if anyone heard anything about this, or if it was just a rumor he heard?
I really think that would be a big loss if they banned baiting in the UP. A LOT AND I MEAN A LOT of hunters cross the bridge every year to go Gun hunting up there. I think it's fine that it's banned down state here, but up there would really hurt a lotta hunters. I feel that it shouldnt be banned there. Unless the CWD hits up there.. which sadly sooner or later it will.
One new rule up there that I like is the NO SPIKES rule.. I think that needs to take effect down here as well.
"If I pull the hammer and shoot this young buck, he's dead. But if I pass on him, the next hunter might not shoot so straight."
