I've been baiting this year around trail cameras trying to get a deer count and just to see what's out there. I've had one of the piles going since mid december. As far as concentrating the deer thing, I don't know if I buy it. I have never had more deer at my piles than I've seen feeding in the fields around the area. Also, they don't stay there and gorge themselves like some would believe making them dependant on the food. I do have regulars that stop by everyday for a bit then move on. As far as hunting over bait, I've yet to catch a good buck with his head in the cornpile. And I know there are some in the area. I don't think baiting is a good way to kill one. I do plan on making some food plots(nature willing) and using a feeder at certian times of the year but won't hunt those either. Not coz I think it's wrong, I just won't hunt that part of the farm for other reasons. Some people think baiting makes it an easy kill, I don't. Unless you're after does. And really, you shouldn't need bait for does, grins.
We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results
