    maybe so....but good for the freezer,nonetheless.

    yeah......i built a corn feeder a couple years ago, and had it out last year.....went in,wasnt even thinking about the damn feeder(this was back within the month my dad died and all), and game wardens had apparently been watching....so they came in and busted us.

    ah i see. yea sometimes on TVA which is government property they put up bait deer. some people who hunt illegal will shoot it the fake deer will fall over and bam GW's come out of the woods and or they have cameras watching the Bait deer. kinda like a bait car.. lol

    I went out on friday, lost my shoe in a mud hole (I didnt have boots then, got some new ones today.)and saw nothing. we must have spooked something cause we heard it running, but no luck other than 3 rabbits.

    hopefully I can get out again soon!

    baiting illegal in SC? it used to be here, but changed a few years back. ODNR decided that it "does not significantly increase the chance of success." although they will skin your ass for hunting turkey over bait for some reason. i have two electric feeders...but haven't fired them up yet. i don't hunt off them. i usually start feeding mid december. my goal is to improve my herd. i only feed during the months that are hard on them. i mix ADM deer feed, shell corn & black oil sunflower seeds. looks like i may have to start earlier this year...my oaks aren't producing much mast and there is nothing planted in the neighbor's fields...normally about 70 acres of soybeans.

    yeah, unfortunately, in our game zone of sc.......ours is the only one that doesnt allow "baiting". they really oughtta change the laws if you ask me. they complain of the population being so big.....so many does needing to be culled....yet they wont fix their laws to how they should be.

    i think that's why they changed the law here. we had a record harvest last year, and need to continue to take more deer to avoid overpopulation.

    i see nothing wrong with feeding them. i don't actually "bait" as my stands are no where near my feeders. instead of feeding them thru summer and up until the end of season, i usually go until about march. by then, there is green stuff coming up for them to browse on. most people i know will only feed until shotgun season is over...just when the deer need it the most. i've read a bit about it, and i feel if i can help the pregnant does through the winter, they will have higher birth #'s and healthier fawns, which means better hunting for me when they grow up. :) i also have 3 or 4 Trophy Rocks on the property. i've tried a few different mineral suppliments, and these seem to be their favorite. they will dig holes where the rock was after it's gone. i keep them out year round. didn't have money for my plots this year...nothing big...just a couple 3/4 acre or so spots that i put some brassicas in. gonna try sunflowers and turnips next year. fairly cheap and according to some friends, the deer love em.

    Bow season in Texas opens Saturday. I'm more than ready! We have seen some nice bucks on the trail cams (mostly at night, though) I'm hoping to get a doe or two in the freezer before rifle season starts. Then during the rut - mid to late Nov around here -I'll hopefully catch a big boy on the move during daylight hours.
