Default Big Game Baiting?

Hey everybody, I know this topic has been beaten to death in the past ten years. But I seem to be seeing more and more baiting products in feed stores and sporting stores for deer and elk. Has anybody heard in the past couple years the laws on baiting big game in Utah? I noticed all of this while I have been searching for bait for my summer bear hunt.

Currently legal for big game. Not legal for birds, including turkeys.

Here is the link to a thread started on this topic just last month.

Baiting in Utah Illegal??

Lots of good information can be found by using the UWN search engine.

I believe this will be brought up at the wildlife board meeting this year. Rather to ban it or not

Thousands of hunters across North America rely on baiting for deer, black bears and hogs that is perfectly legal hunting practice. But as we know that today baiting is illegal for big animals. Detractors are quick to call baiting a “lazy” style of hunting, but that's simply not true. I killed many deers and hogs over bait.

So Robert, you hunt deer and hogs in India? Also little free advertising? Just wondering.

In his defense, technically "deers" is a proper form of a plural reference to multiple species of deer. Since India has many, many different types perhaps that was his intent? You know, "I have killed many deers [chital, sambar, muntjac, and pierre david's] and hogs over bait."

Hunting over bait is...no, let me start over again...Shooting animals over bait is one of those things we need to not only make illegal, but, as hunters we must stop it's practice are selves.
It, alone with high fence hunting, is viewed by must non-hunters as non-ethical and gives the anti's another very powerful weapon to use against us. Activities like this is turning many fence riding non-hunters into fierce anti's. We are already way out numbered and if it were actually put to a referendum across the USA, hunting would be stopped in all forms today.

So, call me what ever names you want and scream about your rights and try and kid yourself about high morals and the such, but, the bottom line is, if we don't clean up our act, we will lose our privilege to hunt some day.

Oh, and by the way, "deers" is common redneck possessive vernacular...as in "I got my 'deers' this years"
