How true.That was why I posted this Kathy. Although I think he is reaching with a few of the "baiting points" he is trying to make. If it is a legal method, whether we like it or not. We should not try to put down another hunter who uses it.
As he put it if we worked together we would CRUSH the anti movement True words were never spoken!
So where can I buy a big old burlap bag of funnel?lets see. a scrape attracts other deer to check it out. pretty clear to me. a funnel attracts deer because of its ease of escape and cover compared to being in the open. pretty clear to me.
Where, in the definition of bait does it say you have to buy it? Face it, the best bait you can possibly use for deer is under a white oak tree when the acorns are falling. Go ahead, deny that's baiting....So where can I buy a big old burlap bag of funnel?
Not every weapon is equal, but you can argue that the end result is the same. Whether I'm shooting buckshot or a bow & arrow, the end goal is to put backstraps on the grillOr how every weapon is equal because the deer is dead at the end of the hunt.
