There was no judgment in that statement, just a statement of how I interpret baiting.  I hunt in a lot of very thick cedar swamps and clear cuts and know about the 20 to 50 yard range limits all too well.  Still, I feel much more accomplishment going one on one with a deer and all of its senses finely tuned.

To anyone here who's ever seen a Pine Plantation, planted pine trees in rows just like crops but on a way bigger scale, what I'm about to say will make sense. "Until pine cones are a staple of a deer's diet I'm more than happy to throw out corn to see deer." Deer walk through these pines with no regular travel patterns or trails. I've watched the same deer walk out from several different trails just around my house. They move any place at any time and it's almost impossible to predict where they will be and when. I've tried everything from Deer Caine to More M'lass to Acorn Rage to just plain molasses but nothing works better than a pile of corn....I thinks it's a gene that been bred into South Carolina deer.

As long as it's legal where it's being used I have no problem with throwing something out to bring deer into a certain area. In my opinion it's no different than taking advantage of a food plot or an oak tree.

I'm against baiting, but then I'm against crossbow useage for healthy hunters.  So, maybe I need to change my ways, since as Ted says, hunting is hunting, but I still disagree with it.  I'll hunt over natural food sources and plant my food plots....I know I know, some people will even ask 'What's the differenct between putting out 100 gallons of corn and hunting over a corn field?'  Such a fine line.
