    $300/gun/day is cheap.

    The last place I was invited to was $550/gun/day, minimum of 3 days, minimum of 3/hunters. That was when I learned the hard way some friendships are based on $$$.

    I have a feeling this sort of thing (baited ponds/fields) happens much more than any of us would like to believe.

    I like to hunt ducks but not 700 a day like. Even if I hit the megabucks cant see myself paying even 300 a day. Guess thats the wisconsin frugality at work.

    Glad the Feds target turds like this guy.

    He should have been shut down a long time ago. Just saying $300 per gun is no longer high dollar. In fact, except in some unique circumstances, $300 per gun won't leave much profit at the end of the season.

    Hopefully he gets the max fine and max time. Personally, I don’t see any difference in baiting like that or planting corn and adding water but the rules are the rules. I remember going to NoDak years ago and they had tons of posted fields as being baited cause they had to knock the crops down.The only way I would ever pay those types of daily rates would be for something we don’t have here(sea ducks, speck hunt, etc).

    Suppose just suppose you're a first time newbie duck hunter. You book a hunt with the right guide and just by being there you get a lesson on calls, decoy placement, dog work, the works. If it's a bad day ask some questions but not " why the hell aren't we raking em in?" and you'll find it's worth it.
    Take mental notes and apply on your home field.

    Knocking crops down seems to be a normal agricultural practice, flooding a field on purpose does not.
