I bait right in my backyard, however the only reason I do this is for my wife and I to be able to watch the deer as they feed on corn and apples. I would never, and have never even considered killing a deer that has been baited. To me it just takes all the fun out of what is supposed to be "hunting." I also wouldn't do this if I thought the deer were going to be killed on the way to the feeder, but the entire mtn I live on is owned by an anti hunter, so I know they are safe traveling to eat in my yard!! But that is just the way I feel about it, doesn't make me right I don't reckon!
