Anyone else live in a state where it is illegal to bait a deer? Cannot use feeders, mineral blocks or anything they can eat.
I use estrus during the rut but nothing before or after. I heard about a recipe of salt and mineral that is buried and mixed in the ground, the deer cannot actually eat it, so is it baiting or luring?:confused:

They actually DO eat the dirt !

There are a lot of variables here.In Al you can out out a salt or mineral lick,but not to hunt over.I think it would be a waste of time to try.Most of mine are near food plots,so they visit them as they come to feed. pouring out deer cocaine is a sure bet for a citation.

That would still be considered baiting. In VA the law reads something like "can't use bait in the aid of taking deer". That would mean no use at all. Different states may read different but VA is the only non bait state that I have read the book. Glad I live in NC where it's legal.
