Change in Baiting Law

Recommended Posts

Wobbler

Have any of you seen the change in baiting for deer? I read the article in the paper and checked the regulations and if you own the land you can use bait? I am not here to argue if that is right or wrong I am just curious. I know in years past even the landowner could not do that but the way I interpret the law (not a lawyer) it seems to me you could hunt over bait if you hunt on land you own Page 72 in the hunting regulations "The restriction does not apply to a person hunting on their own property, when the person has not participated in, been involved with, or agreed to feeding wildlife on adjacent land owned by another person."

Wobb- I think you are reading the reg wrong in my opinion.. .I think this law was for people who had small plots of land.. and the nexd door neighbor had a feeder.. In years before you could not hunt within so far of a feeder... But with the new law... You can still hunt your land, as long as you have nothing to do with putting out the bait/food.

I hope someone corrects me if I am wrong.

Thanks for your opinion. I don't own land so it does not affect me but the way the law is written it could easily be misunderstood! Not knowing what you told me in your above post which makes sense to me, if I was to play devil's advocate I could say as long as I don't advocate feeding or baiting next to my land I could hunt and use bait on my land.

Deitz is absolutely correct.

The rule clearly states that you can hunt your own land even if the neighbor has baited the area adjacent to your land. This rule was developed to prevent previuos hunter harassment where the adjacent land owner would bait deer to prevent his neighbor from hunting near it (even if they were on there own land)

People - You can not bait deer - period.

DD's got it right. The law is intended to not penalize someone hunting on their own land if the neighbor is baiting or feeding deer.

The past regulation would still allow a CO to ticket you if you hunted on trails leading to bait whether the bait was on your property or not. SOme guys only had a small chunk of land and that law would make hunting it impossible. Now, as long as you don't have anything to do with the feeding of the deer and it does not take place on your property, you are safe to hunt it. The only thing I would still avoid is hunting within site of the feeding station... even if the station is on the neighbors piece and you are hunting yours. I think they may still be able to tag you then. I amy be wrong, but I'd avoid that situation.

Good Luck!

      Green has some nice gills. Glad to hear they are biting

      I’m wishing you luck my friend. It’s hard to get away and it can be very deflating when the weather doesn’t cooperate.

      Hit Green for a couple hours this afternoon, almost zero traffic and the sunnies were active. It’s nice to see this lake is back!

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!
