    I can't find what I'm looking for, but isn't there something about a hunter doesn't need to know that he/she is hunting a baited are? The topic came out that one would fight the CO/court for giving him a ticket because the neighbor had a salt block within 1/4 mile +/- of his FIL's field (tree stand). IMO I didn't think that sounded right, though I'm not a deer hunter. And yes this subject has probably been discussed adnausium. Thx. And for all you's going out this weekend: Have fun & be careful.

    A judge would have to be a complete moron not thought that out . How you going to know what your neighbor is doing on his own property?

    At some point the judge reads the charges. Goes like this:
    'Aunt Betty did knowingly and willingly committ the act of... '
    It pays to state that you did not knowingly or willingly commit ...
    Ive admitted to doing the crime and asked the court to acknowledge that I had not premeditated the crime in question. In other words give me a break. It works sometimes. Depends on what county and state and what you did.
    I wandered onto state ground that was closed.
    Clearly marked with a barricade.
    The barricade was a saw horse upside down in the ditch. We hunted. Told buddy that if that old saw horse is still there its mine
    It had a 8 x 10 piece of paper.
    In 14 pt font it said closed for deer hunting.
    We got screwed.

    We were held by a pair of wildlife biologists or whatever until the real badge arrived. My buddy pled guilty and got raked over the coals. I pled not guilty and got the charges dropped. Tony is still upset about it 35 yrs later.

    Yeah, I'm hip. I just thought there was a "law" or something to that nature? Baiting laws are IMO Archaic? Thx!
