Plots and piles are two different things,

1 post in this topic

As a kid new to food plotting, I take offense to the idea that food plots are glorified bait piles. Those of us who spend 100's of dollars in april and may, and hours of our time have a higher goal in mind, sound management a healthier heard and forage in the winter when it is so scarce.

Bait piles spread CWD. It is transmitted through the saliva of deer. If one deer is eating off of a corn pile, drools all over it, and another comes and eats, it will get CWD. Why do you think the Wisconsin Deer Hunters Association wants baiting banned?? Minnesota has it right, give them extra tags, but don't provide a medium for disease to spread.

      I have also heard the rumors that the DNR removed adult fish to plant into other lake years ago. I heard that a few locals had gone as far as to threaten to dynamite the Pike River Dam if that practice did not stop!  I have never heard any proof either way on that report. I assume that fry are planted into lakes that they cannot reproduce in to give fishermen in the area of those lakes the chance to fish for walleyes. Most lakes that the walleyes can reproduce in naturally usually do not require yearly planting to maintain a fishable walleye population. The DNR quit milking walleyes early because they had no demand for fry elsewhere in the state. They very seldom try to fill all of the egg batteries in the hatchery anyway. Cliff
