Yes it is for deer. Michigan was really big on baiting deer until they banned it about 3 years ago do to a penned deer with CWD. Not sure if there is any validity to this but I heard the deer with the CWD came from WI. If this is the case why can the U.P. still bait and the L.P. can't? Doesn't make a whole lot of sense. I baited for 2 years when I first started bow hunting and then got away from it, so it doesn't really matter to me. I just think that the people in charge of this state's natural resources are a joke.Is this for deer?
