So wmi, if I put out a bait pile but only hunted the travel corridors leading to it, would that make it ok? Grins...had to ask ya know. I agree with you that baiting is an atempt to make a short cut. I'm still not convinced that it's a real short cut or not, depends on what you're after. I've had a bait pile going since mid december and still can't draw in all the deer around, much less one that would like to shoot. I also agree with Ron that crop fields and such is bait also. We have been trying to enhance one of the properties we hunt using what I call bait, i.e. food plots, browse, green briar, and security cover etc. It's just not a corn pile.
We cannot continue to do the same things and expect different results
