Deer are not sticking all of thier heads in the same 2x4 foot area all year every day. Once the food in a plot,ag crop, acorn flat,etc, is gone the deer move on. I think the baiting is kinda like your deer is tied to a certain tree, then shot the next morning. All you had to do was dump a bucket of corn on the ground. I work hard on my plots, and do not consider living plants in 2 acres of soil a bait pile when thier is 500 acres of corn and beans around here. I have no problem with sticking togather with my hunting pals, but if its making hunting look bad I totally disagree. It's illegal to hunt over bait in IL, because bait piles,and salt blocks spread CWD,and thats a proven fact.
