    Not, there's enough turkeys out there that I don't need to cheat, but I am checking the accuratcy of your post. Come on and post up one guide that uses what you said???

    I really dont have much opinion on this one way or another. BUT, anyone who buys the "disease is easier spread in summer months" blah blah blah stuff is naive. If that were the sole or even the most significant reason for enacting this law then they would have made the ban for May 1- October 31 or something like that.

    Is this much different than what was in place before??? I mean you could not put out bait one month before the start of turkey season (now it is basically a month and a half). and how does it change the baiting for deer?

    Looks like trail cams will be hurt by this though

    Before, you couldn't have bait on a site a month before you were going to turkey hunt it. You could still feed deer all you liked so long as you weren't hunting over it.

    It is now illegal to have grain on the ground period in the months specified.. deer, turkey, possums, coons, regardless of what you were trying to bait.

    Mineral licks work real well that time of year.

    Valley: I am not totally convinced that bushhogging standing corn in the spring and then turkey hunting over it is not considered baiting, but CSS weighed in and said that it was legal.

    If it is legal, it shouldn't be for turkeys. Let us know the name of the outfitter that is selling turkey hunts over the bushhogged corn. If they are doing this, they are probably doing other things and deserve a visit from a CO.

    Thanks, K

    I will rent out space on a tree for any trail cameras you want to put out. One bag of corn a week....:D.

    Big time!!

    I've posted before that I run 14 game cameras and do a deer census every July and I don't use corn piles or feeders, just mineral licks.

    Did you go back and read the spring turkey hunting guide??
    I don't have a problem with a land owner or guide service thats doing it.
    It's legal.
    My contention is the law needs to be changed, should be illegal, based on previous stated reasons.

    It's legal. I think it's probably something that needs to be looked at by the Commission even though VS hasn't told us who's doing it. I saw in South Carolina last year where the CO's cracked down on manipulating Chufa patches by tilling them chufas up just before the season started. They considered those fields baited.

    I'd be for shutting down bushhogged corn patches during the Spring season.
