baiting

9 posts in this topic

A conservation officer escorted 2 people out the woods in the buffalo area on Sat. Baiting was the issue. If this is true, Thank you to however gave the TIP. Don't know if they were related to the Schmidt twins, but it was there property.

DNR was using aerial surveilance and GPS prior to the season...so it could have been something spotted from the air that tipped them off.

Way to go DNR! I am so sick and tired of the (Contact Us Please) that think they can bait deer and get away with it. I would like to see the penalties increase, more equipment taken, as well as thier priveleges removed for a couple of years. Baiting is flat out unethical and other hunters should be outraged at guys doing this.

I was biking a year ago on a bike trail and noticed red dots in the woods. I took a close look (yes, I tresspassed) and found a deer stand with apples tied with string all around the stand and a deer block.

I called TIP.

Does baiting make hunting more fun. To me hunting is thrilling because you don't bait and It's more difficult that way. If you want to shoot baited animals you should just as well go shoot cows in a fenced field eating at a corn trough. Of course I'm kidding to make a point. Besides you'd be the target for the Farmer if you we're doing that.

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.

      Thanks Cliff! I've been very closely monitoring Pike Bay the last few weeks I'm not far from you as the crow flies right on the bay. Still sitting at 4-5 inches of ALL refroze slush. No good ice. It's flooding over pretty good with 1-3 inches water with the couple inches snow still on top. Hopefully the cold penetrates that snow and gets things going so I can run the sled right up the bay to McKinley by next weekend.

      The ice on the small pond on the west side of the road heading into SJU was able to hold my weight (which is substantial, alas).  I didn't have a chisel, and I wasn't about to go any further out.  Still, very good sign.  I'm sure there'll be guys out by the end of the weekend, if not sooner.
