This isn’t exactly baiting, but deer love it. Some people call it a mineral stump, because you have a small tree’s root system sucking minerals from the ground and concentrating those minerals into a few small sprouts. Here’s the “stump” but it’s a little one. I laid a couple of trees over for firewood back before Spring greenup. One of them bent this little maple over, and it sprouted the same as if it had been cut off. Deer here are drawn to these like freakin’ magnets. By the way, I had 4 pounds of ticks on me after I got down on the ground to get that bottom picture. I hope all y’all losers appreciate how much effort I put into my posts.
