Here's a topic that has a lot of mixed discussion. Here in the state of Nebraska it's legal to bait deer if the baited area is 200 yds. from the location you're hunting. But if the area has been baited hence "corn spilled from a combine or farm truck" you can choose to hunt this area. If the area is used to feed domesticated animals like cattle, hogs, sheep,etc. this area can be hunted too. The physical aspect of baiting, meaning baiting by the hunter, applies to the 200 yrd. rule. Now getting back on the 200 yd. rule. What difference does it make on the yardage of the baited area? My guess is whomever made this law is a rifle hunter! Just my guess. Not slamming rifle hunters at all! I have no regrets hunting over a baited area. I've done this bear hunting. To me this gives the hunter a more selective shot and the animal is in a relaxed mood. Also the hunter can take better time and make a more ethical shot at the animal. Just my thoughts. I would like some feedback from those hunters that can bait and not. What are your thoughts on baiting. Is it cheating or is it ethical hunting.:cool2: Mark..
