Doe Shooting (Experience/Caution)
That just shows how clueless you are. Kind of amazing that on opening day of gun season, no one was sitting on all this bait. Do you know anything about soybeans? Guessing not, because that would be a terrible bait. Deer eat its leaves all summer, and by about the time bow season rolls around the leaves yellow off and the deer largely ignore it. Then, come about this time of year when we are done hunting they finish off the pods. If you had any grasp of the concept of bait, you would know that I picked a poor bait. We don't need that food for attractant, that land would all be agriculture we could hunt over all fall if we wanted. It is planted primarily for now through spring. I've got some winter rye in one of the bean fields also for early spring green up. Pretty effective to bait in March or April when the season is closed, isn't it? What about the couple hundred tree seeds I've got stratifying in my refrigerator now to start as seedlings soon and for my crew and my neighbors to plant this spring? Should I toss those in the trash as well, would that make you feel better? This stuff is fairly common in the area I hunt, and shockingly, hunter satisfaction is actually pretty good as well. If more people did what we are doing, hunting would be better statewide. Those that know me personally know that I am active in helping others improve their hunting as well. Even though my situation is rosy, I still contact the DNR and my representatives to weigh in on things that will positively affect hunters in other areas. I belong to a few sporting/conservation groups and contribute to them as well. My land is opened up for a learn to hunt program run by a local conservation group up there. I have people on LL message me about food plots and I try to give them as good as advice as possible as well as weighing in on the related forums. Some of the guys that hunt with me forward questions from their friends and coworkers about various habitat related things or management rules and I try to help them out as well. I am passionate about great deer hunting and healthy well balanced populations, so I feel no need to apologize for that.
Worry about your own hunting, mine is fine.
