    Money, money, money. Money!

    I do not, in any form or fashion have an opinion of the morality of hunting over bait for deer or hog. I do however have an opinion of the lawmakers passing this, when I have my game and fish saying CWD is passed by deer bunching up, and bait adds to deer bunching up. Where’s the logic? I can knot think of one reason...

    The same thing happen in MS. The lawmakers, against the recommendation of state game and fish made bating legal (money, money, money, Money!).

    Now that CWD is spreading thoughout the state they are banning batting in certain CWD zones the prevent spreading, which is about 1/2 the state. I'm guessing it will be banned statewide again before long.

    Sadly the best thing that could happen for hunting is the destruction of the North American deer herd. Deer have caused more destruction of hunter access than anything alone. It’s a shame.

    Interesting... makes it sound even more like a “get it while the getting is good” argument.

    You may be correct. But I don’t think a mass die off of deer will get us our good spots back.

    You’re probably right. Some jack wagon from Alabama would start up trophy squirrel leases and people would start planting black phase grey squirrels and fox squirrels and people would sit over bird feeders telling everybody how it’s impossible to kill a squirrel unless you have sunflower filled bird feeders.

    I agree with Stevena. Classic Alabama money grab. Like the new additional $10 if you fish for reef fish in salt water. They say it’s to know how many folks fish reef fish mainly snapper. That’s a bunch of bull. The state already mandates checking in snapper on the app, so they should already know. I could care less how a deer is hunted. It’s just a alabama money grab.
