Solid thoughts on all the posts. Pa doesn't allow baiting, Michigan has taken steps to terminate baiting, this due to the disease problems, I wish Ohio would follow suit. To those where baiting is not allowed forces one to become a better hunter. In those states that allow hunting I know tradition plays a big part in the style of hunting you do. My good hunting friend from the UP of Michigan only hunted from shacks and huge bait piles. When I brought him to PA to bow hunt naturally, he had forgot how to hunt! Now he and his dad come through every year to hunt the old fashion way and they love it. In fact my buddy said this year." its hard to go home and sit in front of a pile of bait and get excited". This is from a person who has shot over 100 deer with a bow.
