I would favor baiting in the special regulations area, but not across the state.
Actually, you had your wish. Baiting was tried in the special regulations areas in southeast PA on a test basis. The purpose was to draw deer from unhuntable areas into areas where they could be hunted. I'd have to look it up to be sure what the results were, but I don't think it was as effective as the PGC thought it might be, and as of now the test program for baiting has been discontinued.
I don't know what (if anything) is being done now to solve the problem of deer overpopulation in those areas. If the deer would only pack their suitcases and move to Potter! Seriously, an email to the PGC would probably let you know what is currently being done.
When the Everyday Hunter
isn't hunting, he's thinking about hunting, talking about hunting, dreaming about hunting, writing about hunting, or wishing he were hunting.
