I agree.... I only bait to see what has made it through the deer hunting season and to find out how the overall herd is doing (body size).
I also bait to see when bucks have dropped their antlers. This way I know when to begin shed hunting- one of my favorite pastimes. I do however use mineral lick sites to help the deer with their mineral needs and nutrition.
