My Mule Deer hunting is 100% walk and stalk. Won't hunt over crops. At the ranch in Minnesota it's 100% enclosed heated stands over crops. Totally different hunts. After some long physically draining Western hunts it's nice to sit back, put your feet up and watch the deer. We let the young bucks walk and go for the big guys. Not unusual to see 40-50 deer at a time feeding early morning and dusk. Many are young bucks. Hunting over crops is not a lot different then baiting, but I've never put feed out. If baiting is the way you hunt, fine with me. Have a GREAT hunt.
