    My bad, I worded that poorly.

    And if the neighbor wouldn't admit to baiting the area, and there was no prior knowledge of them doing such, nor anyone else in the area, and bait was found a mere broad jump from the occupied, actively hunting blind, but just across the property line, realistically, what would have been the outcome of that encounter? A warning?

    Thanks

    Depending on how obvious the bait was to the hunters, yes they might have been warned and shut down,but if the feed was there in front of them and clearly visible then maybe a citation would be issued BUT only after a thorough investigation. Keep in mind that we are talking about a very short distance from a blind on the river a broad jump might be a bit short, it was about 60 feet away.
    If the feed were clearly visible it could then become a should have known situation but we would have investigated and if the investigation brought to light facts that exonerated the hunters that would be the end of it.


    The case I spoke of involved a person who fed birds on her lawn and off her shore. The feed was on land, in the water, and clearly visible from the blind and we were called to check out the legality of the situation. Nothing like your hypothetical case.
