    I killed a doe over bait on christmas day. My other 3 deer this year have been killed with no bait, no food plot, no attractant of any kind. For me I get more out of shooting a deer without any attractant although I sit many days without seeing deer.

    But, Every once in a while it is fun to sit by a feeder and shoot a deer. Sometimes a lot of fun. Don't knock it till you try it. Ever hunted doves over a grain field? Kinda fun isn't it?

    Really ...this comes down to personal ethics/choice...you have to decide what you feel is right...thats whats great about this country...you decide what is ethically as it applies to you according to your states DNR rules.

    As for forums...its like it was said in an early reply opinions are like $##@$#'s everyone has one...lol

    This is interesting to me being born and raised in the west. Hunting here has always been, well hunting. No tree stands, no food plots. My first deer required miles of walking through the hills and brush of southern Utah. Here in Washington I still will likely have to put in at least a couple miles to find my deer or elk. I just can not see sitting on a feeder or food plot as hunting. Seems more like harvesting to me, the way one would pick a tomato.

    I know it is accepted practice for many white tail hunters, and that is fine by me, just not for me.

    We do have the advantage here in the west on many thousands of square miles of public lands. Nothing like stalking a mule deer across a few miles of sage to make a hunt memorable. Trying to get the drop on a Blacktail in heavy timber can be pretty strenuous too. Mountains or plains I gotta work for my meal.

    yes to each thier own and al long as its legal go with it. that said ive never hunted out of a tree stand or a bait. i enjoy what d.b. posts but on his list the only one i use is a compound bow. all public land spot and stalk. but if we dont stand together as was said peta wants us all gone, i dont know about yall but i also run bear and cat with hounds and couple that with bow hunting now some make me out to be public enemy number one and want to put me on the fbi most wanted list. bottom line is we have to stand together each and every one of us and we need to keep introducing new and young hunters, welcoming them with open arms and teaching them everything we can to preserve what we love and live to do. good luck to yall and may it be a season to remember.
    dont know what the h#@l im doing but im trying to figure it out

    Hey,if it's legal where you live...so be it.Is it hunting?..No.All your wanting to do is use a 11 yearold to justify your way of thinking and satisfaction.Not how i would want to start a kid out on hunting.Ok to start him out over a large food plot or in the real woods......but a pile of bait...why not take him to a petting farm and let him shoot something.Geeeze,jmo.

    Personally, I am in favor of more hunters over less hunters.

    Each person has their own standards (ethics) controlling what they will and won't do.

    Most importantly, since this started with watching this on TV, and it conflicts with your ethics, the solution is easy. CHANGE THE CHANNEL. Vote with your feet; err thumb I guess, and take your viewing elsewhere. Same reason I don't watch the shows that feature a lot of long range rifle hunting.

    Not trying to beat a dead horse here, but if it gets the kids out there and those that may not be able to hunt by any other means than from a wheel chair or some other surcumstance than what is wrong with it? I love still hunting but still sit the stand over a block or some other form as well. Many studies have been done and it seems to come back that hunting over bait does not offer any advantage at least with whitetail. There is ample food source available year round or else none of could hunt anything. What it does offer by hunting bait though is suplamental nutrients for a healthier herd to produce that trophy that you wish to get someday. Hunting bait still requires doing your homework and getting out there. A hotter topic to me is durring the gun seasons how people are allowed to drive the deer from every corner of the state to the other. This results in how many deaths and trespassing issues every year not to mention the tax dollars that are spent for law officers to step up patrols because people don't care where they go, or have not seen their gun since they put it away last season. I would love to get my children out in the woods, but when I have to worry about the guy that walks past my blind in my woods without permission or better yet the fact that the buck that has been laying behind that tree for the past hour jumps and runs between myself and the guy who don't know where I am (I mean he don't know he is trespassing, how would he know I am there.) I really think that there are bigger and better subjects to worry about. Get out and hunt. Be ethical about what you do and respectful of those who have not closed the door to hunting. Or we will all be shooting tomatoes in the garden to have something to hunt shoot what ever you call it or however you twist it. If your out there good if you can get someone else out great, if you pass it on to the next generation outstanding, losing the right to hunt or shoot or harvest or bear arms or fly Old Glory in your front yard, That is what will happen if we cannot use our own heads about what we do.

    In my humble opinion, to me hunting over a baited area would not make for a good time, for me.

    I came into hunting to walk around in the forest and stalk, perhaps hang a tree-stand over a trail. It's all a matter of opinion when it comes down to it.

    So why can't we all just get along, and concentrate on dealing with the greater enemy; PETA!



    Thanks,
    Paul,

    I have taken kids all my life. I give my time and effort to get them in the woods. I took a disabled vet this year in a blind in front of feeder. He had the time of his life. Its legal and if you have a promblem with someone taking a kid hunting. You need to go take a deep breath. Some of the guys I took at a very young age are ethical hunters. Who are you to judge anyone that hunts. I dont have to jutisfy my way of hunting. I know its legal in my state. I have wrote articles for years in the newpaper and guys like you are whats wrong with hunting. You think your way is the only way. Get overself. By the way this kid is most likely a better hunter at his age than you might ever be. He helps his dad guide and is a very ethical kid. Please inform how you hunt! Im sure I could pick it apart.
    Like you know something about taking others hunting. I do it ever year and have done for years.

    If that's hunting for you good! I think if someone thinks it is the wrong way thier view should be respected to! If you want people to repect your views on hunting respect thiers too.

    I personaly would never hunt deer from a blind, over bait, or from a stand, I don't feel it is hunting FOR ME! If you wanna, knock yourself out! I respect your right to do so and your right to call it hunting, but don't make me call it hunting.....

    Then explain how you hunt. You have elimanated several ways many hunt. I
    really want to know how you hunt and have you ever hunted in other states.
    I dont care how you hunt or what you call it. Have fun and do it legal. Harvest only matter to the person who shoots the animal.

    While I agree that some forms of hunting methods are not for me.. However, I feel as long as it's legal, you can hunt any way you choose. I really don't care. Now, I may not participate but that does not mean I'll give you any grief about hunting.

    As hunters, we have enough trouble with the anti's and segregating our group and fighting between groups only makes us easier to take down.

    I often wonder when someone critasizes other hunters in many forms and how others hunt. That we dont have a Peta person amoung us here. If hunters dont start stop critasizing each other and try to promote the sport. We wont survive. Dont think for a minute Peta is not watching these threads.

    all my hunting is on foot or horseback to get back into the backcountry. whether it be elk or deer with a bow or rifle i have never used a bait or treestand. when i can i stalk and use calls to try and get them in range. i do use a atv and a wagon when i hunt with my dogs to strike a bear and when they are turned loose im on foot following them. that said i take my hat off to any one who takes a youngster, disabled, or any other first time hunter. if its legal where you hunt thats all that matters. when i can no longer hunt the way i do now i may very well use a treestand or bait. not gonna knock it just cause i havent done it. we all need to stand with each other or we will be talking about the old days when we could hunt. good luck to all and for damn sure pass this sport we love on to others to carry it forward.

    Apparently you think hunting is different. Explain yourself.

    You use calls? You hunt over water holes? Maybe I wont call what you do hunting but I would doubt it.
