    Sorry, a friend sent a link. Did the best I could, but I can see it with readers!

    It’s a bill in ID to do away with hunting flooded standing crops for waterfowl.

    Probably for corn complexes and places with standing crops planted just for legal bait.

    You can add water to corn and it's legal but it's illegal to add corn to water but either way there is corn and water. It's about time this hypocrisy ends. Either everyone should be allowed to bait or nobody should.

    Good on Idaho
