Report for 3D. Zero sightings on my land. The last deer on my cameras were on the 29th at 7pm. Happens every year since everyone around me baits with corn. I don't do that and never will. Feeling frustrated since thus happens every year now.

I feel your pain. We used to see over a dozen deer in these fields when I started hunting here 8 years ago. They all but disappeared up until a couple years ago and seem to be making a comeback. The baiting is out of control here too. Just last Sunday I scouted the fencerows and woods around here and stumbled upon 2 stands that had a salt lick and a pile of corn only yards away. It isn't fair at all to the people who are honest.

I thought salt licks were illegal.

Not sure, I do know the bait has to be GONE 30 days prior to the season if it's going to be hunted if I remember correctly.

They are illegal but that doesn't stop people from using them. There's a hunting club that baits out the wazoo and the deer disappear every year 2 days before the opener. When I hear a shot from the club, it's always from the same location and at the same times because they use timers on their feeders. I wouldn't care but when I take my kids out we never see anything. I have actually watched a hillside and when they shoot 10 or more deer would run down the hill then make a big arc back to the feeder. Then another shot and they did the arc again with one less deer.

Quote:Baiting
Baiting is allowed in the Southeast Special Regulations Area by
permit only. Elsewhere in the state, it is unlawful to hunt in or
around any area where artificial or natural bait, food, hay, grain,
fruit, nuts, salt, chemicals or minerals, including their residues, are
used, or have been used within the past 30 days, as an enticement
to lure game or wildlife regardless of the type or quantity. Hunters
are responsible for ensuring that the hunting area has not been
baited before they begin hunting. They should physically inspect the
area and question landowners, guides and caretakers. This section
does not pertain to hunting near areas where accepted farming or
habitat management practices are taking place (example: hunting
near food plots on game lands is legal). Any natural or manmade
nonliving bait can be used to attract coyotes for hunting or trapping.
Bait cannot be visible from the air when trapping.
