WOW, boys take out your plugs.
Holly crap that's allot of bait
Nothing wrong with bait It's legal! Cam have you had winter wheat around that pit? Just curious which is better if you have?
I have a farmer do my crops and he probably will pick corn and go back with wheat and it has been the best hunting when he does that .
it shouldn't be
I keep grass around my pit all the time . they farm the rest in what ever beans corn wheat . grass is king around my parts. we left corn in around the pit and 1/2 of the water worse year I think on record . next year was grass and wheat and kill numbers doubled
any type of flooded crop = BAIT
Waterfowl Hunting on Agricultural Lands
Agricultural lands offer prime waterfowl hunting opportunities. You can hunt waterfowl in fields of unharvested standing crops. You can also hunt over standing crops that have been flooded. You can flood fields after crops are normally harvested and use these areas for waterfowl hunting. Hunting waterfowl over a crop that has not been harvested but that has been manipulated (rolled/disced) is considered baiting under current regulations.
The presence of seed or grain in an agricultural area rules out waterfowl hunting unless the seed or grain is scattered solely as the result of a normal agricultural planting, normal agricultural harvesting, normal agricultural post-harvest manipulation, or normal soil stabilization practice.
The Service’s regulations on baiting specifically recognize the role of USDA’s State Cooperative Extension Specialists (CES) in recommending to farmers the normal planting, harvesting, post-harvest manipulation, and soil stabilization practices for each crop grown in their state. Hunting over crop fields managed in accordance with these CES recommendations is generally not considered baiting.
The CES provides to farmers a wide range of recommendations on a case-by-case basis, but not all of their recommendations may be considered “normal” planting, harvest, post-harvest manipulation or soil stabilization practice for the purposes of determining whether or not hunting over crop fields could be considered baiting
