    That's going to be a pain to deal with. I hate it for everyone hunting that area.

    If CWD is confirmed in state, I'd bet on it. It will suck too.......

    I signed up for 15 years with the CREP program, this year is the last year. I’ll start putting out food plots like I used too.

    Change is coming soon in this regards. Statewide. theres just no way around it IMO


    It will change how many hunt myself included but will change a ton more than that. I myself don’t hunt over bait unless taking a kid but I bait and run cameras because it’s fun to see what’s out and about. I’m not skilled enough to run cameras to get a ton of deer pics without corn or bait.

    I will miss the anticipation of checking cameras like it’s Xmas morning each time.

    Special regulations pertaining to only these 5 counties now apply:

    • Use of bait/feed, salt or minerals for wildlife is now prohibited.
    • Carcass tags are required on all deer in these counties (watch video).
    • Hunters must take deer to one of the check stations in the CWD Surveillance Zone during modern gun and muzzleloader seasons. (During archery, crossbow and special youth seasons, deer heads may be dropped off at Deer Sample Collection Stations--see below).
    • Deer transportation restrictions apply. For deer parts to leave the 5-county zone:
      • Meat must be de-boned
      • Skulls or skull-caps must be cleaned (brain and tissues removed)

    I suspect that’s best that can do but it’s a far cry from producing same results and quality pics.

    and I just got permission to hunt some big woods and was looking forward to going dead center and putting out corn abs a camera just to see what’s there etc. no chance I’d hunt it as way too far in etc but exciting to see nonetheless

    I will be surprised if baiting isn’t limited next year and beyond shocked if all out banned the following year. I am lucky and have food plots etc and watering holes but know it will be a bad deal for many.

    Salt licks and mineral sites. Surely the new rules I assume are coming will be no further baiting or putting out vs go clean up what you’ve had in place for mineral sites. If one had to go remove minerals that would be tough

    That’s pretty close to what deer hunters ,had to do several years ago.

    I would guess it is just a matter of time before they find a confirmed case in Kentucky. Then all baiting will be illegal.

    I just wouldn’t put no more out. It will still be active for at least a year.

    I’d say it will be next year. When they start checking that many deer I can’t see them not finding a case. I hope I’m wrong though.
