Wow. This is kinda a sensitive subject, and many people are very passionate one way or the other. I don't bait my deer because of health concerns. I have left notes on my neighbor's corn feeder that is within arms reach of the border fence telling him I don't appreciate his feeder placement. He starts feeding corn out of that feeder about a week before deer (gun) season, and brings a bunch of guys out there through the week and they shoot anything that comes in. I have to stay out of that place for that season because I'm afraid of getting shot with them shooting right into my place. I guess that's more of a stupidity problem than a baiting problem, but it still sucks. They bait in all the deer and then shoot at all of them...lazy hunters...I agree.
