If this passes I know of a number of deer hunters who are going to have to change the way that they hunt. No more baiting deer at a waterhole and then sitting in their lawn chairs to shoot them from across the road.

I can't say the camera rule would bother me at all. But it is pretty funny how law of omission is expressly circumvented by allowing salt and other minerals.

But I will admit I tried for many years to dump apples up in the mountains to attract deer just to get rid of them and I'm not sure one apple was ever touched. I understand the deer come in to orchards and browse them but I just never saw any indication it was a draw without some trees nearby.

I have areas I put trail cameras that have never had a person show up on them in years. I'm pretty sure it is not affecting anybody at all by having them there!
I don't care at all about the baiting rule though, the only baiting I do is when fishing!

1. Casey snider can suck it.

2. Jokes on him. I’ll just set my stand 60 yards from my bait pile, 10 yards further than his 50 yard baited area definition and I’ll be completely legal.

3. I lost the keys to all my trail cam lock boxes. Cant get into them to remove them and it’s illegal for me to cut down the tree they are on to get them removed before his season closure. My bad. what a bunch of Fbags

Oh, apples are a draw for sure! There is a reason some outfits bring them in by the truck load to drop off in areas.

And it was only a matter of time before something like this was officially proposed. It is really getting out of hand out there. There has been no rule against it, so Iím not blaming anyone, but itís too bad this is even necessary.

The way I read it, is the proposed law will require a bait permit. Just like the Bear baiting permit. If this does make it through, the next law will be eliminating bait stations for Bear.


Trail cams IMO are considered very close to NOT being "fair chase" for a wild animal. Great if you use them, I'm not saying your wrong and I'm right.


I just get tired of taking a hike and running into them almost everywhere I go. It's like a dog finds a place to **** his leg and mark "his territory". Is that what hunters are thinking....If I place a camera on this waterhole, its mine, stay away??

I have no complaints about this proposal. I actually kind of like it.




I'd also be OK with some modifications, or compromises. Restrict the number of cameras a user is allowed to use and require them to be registered and labeled with ownership info and date of installation. They simply need to be controlled. Unfortunately, sometimes you need some regulation. We are at that point with cameras.
