So, a lot of guys will use their elk or deer kill to bait a bear. I still consider it baiting, so I pass on doing it.
Different strokes and all that.
Interesting. I wouldn't have thought of that.
This is the way the reg is written here. Pretty much covers it. I watch the bear bombs fly off the shelf of our Cabelas, BassPro, and DSG ; and just shake my head.
Bait means any natural or artificial substance, including but not restricted to, shucked or unshucked corn or other grains, apples or other fruits or vegetables, honey, molasses, anise or other spices, pastries or other breadstuffs, meat or fish products, or any other substances or products which may be fed upon, ingested by, or which otherwise constitute a nutritive attraction or enticement to bear......
....Baiting means the placement, exposing, depositing, distributing, or scattering of any bait or other substance so as to constitute for bears a lure or attraction to areas where hunters are attempting to take them.
