Default Baiting in Utah Illegal??

I was under the impression that baiting is illegal in Utah. There is clearly a pile of apples or something in this video. Not much anyone can do at this point. They probably don't know it's illegal if they're posting a video...

What page of the guidebook deals with baiting for big game? 🤔

It's not illegal in UT. That was a big buck.

That's what I was getting at. Probably a good idea to check the actual regulations before calling a guy out on the internet as doing something illegal. That was a very big buck.

Despite common belief there is no law prohibiting it. I dont think there has ever been a law about it, maybe people get confused with laws of other states??

Ok my mistake. For some reason I thought it was illegal! At least we get to enjoy a cool video out of it.

What I find odd, is that it's illegal to bait upland birds and turkeys, but it's not illegal to bait big game. I'm indifferent either way, but don't understand why it's ok for one and not the other.

Another rule that doesn't make any sense is the transportation via aircraft law. I know the "people are going to chase and find animals from the air," story, but the DNR could allow aircraft travel and then not allow hunting within a certain timeframe of landing. I watched a Randy Newburg video where he flew into some landlocked public property and killed a good bull - it was pretty cool.

It is illegal to do it the same day, you have to wait 48 hours after you fly in.

Use of vehicle or aircraft
Utah Code § 23-20-3 and Utah Admin. Rule R657-5-14
You may not use an airplane, drone or
any other airborne vehicle or device, or any
motorized terrestrial or aquatic vehicle (except a
vessel)—including snowmobiles and other recreational
vehicles—to take protected wildlife,
including big game.
Also, you may not take protected wildlife
that are being chased, harmed, harassed, ral-
lied, herded, flushed, pursued or moved by an
aircraft or any other vehicle or transportation
device.
In addition, you may not use any type of
aircraft, from 48 hours before any big game
hunt begins through 48 hours after any big
game hunting season ends, to perform any of
the following activities:
• Transport a hunter or hunting equipment
into a hunting area
• Transport a big game carcass
• Locate, or attempt to observe or locate,
any protected wildlife
Flying slowly at low altitudes, or hovering,
circling or repeatedly flying over an area where
protected wildlife is likely to be found, may
be used as evidence that you’ve violated the
restrictions

It's not just waiting 48 hours before you hunt. You can't do it 48 hours before the season starts.
