It's really simple, one is hunting and one is not.

Let the neighbors bait away, let them spread scent and educate the deer as much as they please and wonder why they don't see mature bucks

that thinking doesn't fill the freezer very often . if the deer know where the feed is , that's where they'll be .its not always about the biggest deer . some folks make damn sure their efforts don't go unrewarded . better to have a perfect doe down than go through a year meatless . call it what you like .

Wrong. You are not allowed to hunt over bait of any kind in Iowa. You can't even bowhunt a trail leading to a bait pile or feeder.

in that case . your vote doesn't matter . all the hunters do have the same regulations and an even playing field , but not the option to bait . too bad .......move !

I feel sorry for so called hunters who feel the need to hunt over bait.

no use feeling sorry . the guys that bait get to eat great . and that's goal # 1 . with a very high success rate . id rather be eating than wondering why I missed or no deer actually got in bow range . or starving come end of the season . no regrets .

Is baiting in a high fence worse than baiting outside a high fence. Or how about baiting outside a high fence vs not baiting inside a high fence. Which do the “experts” allow to be called hunting.
I couldn’t resist��

Hunt private land, all the neighbors bait but have no bedding areas so all the deer hit their corn at night as soon as there's a little pressure.
