    This guy talks in circles. He is speaking as he thinks creates more confusion than clarification

    I’ve heard that baiting/feeding with corn in the winter months is very bad for a deers digestive system and could kill them.

  3. Ohio Catfishing on January 27, 2023 at 4:18 am

    I hunt about 40 acres of land that has cows on about 35 acres of it and the deer dont move where they used to since the cows have been introduced so the only way I have been able to see deer is to bait on the 5 acres or so that the cows arent on. Do you have any tips on how I could see more deer without having to use a cornpile? I know that going and dumping corn out every week isnt going to help me kill big mature deer but I just dont have an idea on how to draw the deer in without baiting.

  4. Jacob Schmitt on January 27, 2023 at 4:18 am

    Baiting can work very good if done correctly the problem is most people hunt right on the bait. If you treat it like the deer do it is just a food source that the deer use like most food sources are used after dark if you set them so you can hunt close to their bedding area and catch them between their bed and the bait or in the rut set it up in areas where bucks have good areas to circle down wind of the baited area and hunt there most times about 100 yards down wind with lots of cover or high ground so older bucks feel safe with good cover or topography

  5. Doug's Arrowheads And Outdoors on January 27, 2023 at 4:18 am

    What about master bait?

  6. Dino Bernardi on January 27, 2023 at 4:21 am

    I’m the guy using bait

  7. Monster RAM on January 27, 2023 at 4:22 am

    You must not have any hunting skills if you have to use bait.

  8. jacob carolan on January 27, 2023 at 4:25 am

    I walk through the woods on my property quietly with doe piss on my shoe. Never used a blind, if I find a good spot or see a deer I sit at the base of a tree. I’ve hunted 3 seasons and shot 4 deer. Rifle hunting is cake, you don’t need any more advantage than the rifle gives you. Average shot I have taken is 50 yards, any hunter worth their salt should be able to do the same. Baiting at all is cheating in my opinion, find the food source, that’s natural bait.

  9. McMuskie on January 27, 2023 at 4:27 am

    I do throw a few apples out, I’m after the meat, I’ll shoot small racks.
    Our group won’t shoot Does anymore.
    Our area has declined badly in the last 20years.

  10. BJ TAYLOR on January 27, 2023 at 4:30 am

    Why are you making a video about bathing if you’re against it just makes no sense I did not even watch but a minute of this video

  11. Neil Robertson on January 27, 2023 at 4:30 am

    I am getting a lot of deer in the last two weeks and some big bucks. But I am about 100 yards from a corn field inside the forest and I feed them a lot and it seems to be males at night girls during the day?

  12. Robert Livingston on January 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    Buck’s aren’t interested in bait they’re interested in sex, a little bait along the edge of your decimated food plot keeps the does coming. watch the edges about 150 yard’s out that’s where the Buck’s are traveling.

  13. Backcountry Survivalists on January 27, 2023 at 4:31 am

    I’ve been baiting pumpkins my whole hunting career. You are defiantly right about when they come out just before dark. I actually have success right before dark on almost every deer I’ve shot!

  14. Matt Tucker on January 27, 2023 at 4:33 am

    Do you think baiting increases disease transmission like CWD? Here in AL we are CWD free, but Mississippi passed the ability to bait in 2015 and now they have confirmed cases of CWD right on the Mississippi/Alabama line. While you can put feeders out all year long in AL, I think a lot of hunters don’t do it bc it has to be hidden and I fear that if that rule ever changes we will see a huge spike in the number of hunters that bait and, consequently, AL will no longer be CWD free.

  15. jbolin105 on January 27, 2023 at 4:34 am

    I have a feeder behind my house with corn also sometimes I will put out sweet horse feed, and other minerals. This is mainly for the deer and other animals benefit and for inventory. Seems like anymore I spend more time trying to take care of them than I do hunting.

  16. Rick Parshall on January 27, 2023 at 4:35 am

    No hunting a bait pile in NY… go for their food… 🦌

  17. Michael Garrett on January 27, 2023 at 4:37 am

    65$ gone that fast

  18. Bob Moody on January 27, 2023 at 4:38 am

    this guy is right he"s never baited he doesn’t" know what he’s talking about

  19. Noel Lillis on January 27, 2023 at 4:38 am

    Lol. I hear people tell me all the time how baiting is blasphemy….but every year all the feed stores, sporting good stores and grocery stores are all out of corn.

  20. Kregg Danuser on January 27, 2023 at 4:39 am

    I have noticed way more deer movement without baiting. They will travel and look for food rather than walk from bedding to the bait pile! Great videos.

  21. Jay w4zxt on January 27, 2023 at 4:39 am

    I use corn to strategically place travel routes right before the rut. I take inventory and hunt scrapes close to bedding areas after using multiple cameras at many different angles. A mature buck with hit it when the wind is right and more times than not, that wind isn’t in my favor. It’s checkers

  22. Robert Livingston on January 27, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Baiting in the UP has changed significantly since the 70s and early 80s, it used to be hauling a bag of Apple’s on your shoulders 1/2 to maybe a mile a week before season and then again when you went in to hunt the following weekend. Then in the 90s it became commercialized into whoever has the biggest bait pile wins. I’ve tried it all to try and stay competitive, I think I’ve shot one descent buck from a bait pile. Usually older Buck’s skirt the edge’s from 100 to 200 yard’s out checking for does. Yes those young Buck’s will walk right in and feed

  23. RK Life on January 27, 2023 at 4:40 am

    Michigan hunters love their bait!

    Should be interesting next year to see what happens with the bait ban. I used to tease my grandpa for using bait when we hunted in the UP, but he was old and he always claimed that during the Rut, the bait kept the does around, and therefore the bucks came in as well during daylight hours.

  24. Cole Parkhurst on January 27, 2023 at 4:44 am

    I love how people think they are real hunters when they bait deer when they are absolutely not. Baiting deer is like me throwing a few second cutting bails of hay to the cows in the huge pasture and shooting one of them. People who bait deer aren’t real Hunter at all. They are losers who cheat. Do it the right way

  25. Randy on January 27, 2023 at 4:44 am

    50 deer in 1 season period is illegal

  26. Peyton Mahoski on January 27, 2023 at 4:45 am

    You’re in the up too?

  27. Nick Millican on January 27, 2023 at 4:50 am

    would you consider "planting a small apple orchard", as baiting the bucks? just wondered if mature bucks treat that the same as a corn pile.

  28. STDs hurt! on January 27, 2023 at 4:50 am

    I would spread the bait over a 15×15′ area and leave it for a week or two then come in to hunt with more do the days worth put more that day and leave till the next weekend…

  29. Gregory Hunts on January 27, 2023 at 4:51 am

    I will bait alittle bit at times but only early season mineral sights and late season corn for a late season Doe. I never bait a spot trying to shoot a buck they are way to smart to come in during daylight. I see more deer just hunting less but hunting during the right times of year and with the right wind. I let em feel safe all year then pick off a Doe or 2 first week season opens then I stay out of the woods till October 26th every year. I move between one giant property and two small property’s use a climber or a saddle and never sit the same tree twice unless you have to. I don’t have alot of big bucks on my wall but I damn sure keep the freezer full..

  30. NeoisoN on January 27, 2023 at 4:51 am

    I stop hunting in December . Letting a 200 acre farm become a sanctuary of no pressure. I use a tractor and put a load of corn out at a fenceline. Normally the back side is heavily plowed so the deer normally won’t use that route. I walk down a low water way through the plowed field undetected. Hunt the wind with bait. I can shoot a mature 140+ every year doing this. Every time you leave you spook deer out. They still come back and look up eat corn and look up again. They know I’m there and when mature bucks get my number that I don’t want to shoot. They either leave completely or come in closer to dark.

    Also baiting for mature bucks works best when our high temps are at 20F and lows below zero. That pressures those big matures bucks into the field during the light. Because they depend of the food source and when it’s that cold they burn more calories than they can consume. This is the key for success. 😉

  31. Joseph Kelly on January 27, 2023 at 4:53 am

    Dont hunt over bait. You position yourself between the beds and the food source. Hunting over the bait right next to the bed is disastrous. They will bed near the food source if close to the bed and you will spook them getting to your stand. You have to make them get up and come to you. Ambush them half way in between on the trail.

  32. Lajuan Jackson on January 27, 2023 at 4:54 am

    Im amazed at how much I’ve learned watching your videos they’re very helpful and give David and I alot of hope for a great hunting season in 2020.

  33. dave Kamala's on January 27, 2023 at 4:55 am

    What’s a food plot baiting so not different just shouldn’t be able to attract deer with a food source that’s not hunting in my opinion .

  34. B on January 27, 2023 at 4:57 am

    Last season for baiting in Michigan

  35. Countryboy kokas on January 27, 2023 at 4:58 am

    Mike from Michigan I do not beat I just go jump in the brush sit on a deer Trail blend in that’s a better way you can catch them

  36. 2EZ OUTDOORS on January 27, 2023 at 4:59 am

    Before baiting got banned I liked to put some out but I’d Hunt a couple hundred yards away from it between the pile and bedding area. Some spots I would put a stand over it but only Hunt it if a good buck started showing up during the rut. I’ve got plenty of pictures of nice bucks middle of the day coming into bait piles and sniffing around looking for does. Never got a picture of them actually eating anything.

  37. Gregory Hunts on January 27, 2023 at 4:59 am

    I don’t bait anymore. I did always have mineral sites with camera’s on em but now in Vernon Co. you can’t do that anymore either. So this year guess I will try food plot’s. Thanks Jeff for all you helpful video’s.

  38. Jae Hanson on January 27, 2023 at 4:59 am

    I put in a couple small food plots this year but it really didn’t keep the does on my land like it has in previous years with carrots and corn. I just have to learn to be a better hunter I guess. Love your work, man. Thank you for sharing your knowledge

  39. Scott Allen on January 27, 2023 at 5:00 am

    Why not set up a timer that scatters food only during the day? You can set it up and only fill it every month or two. It can be used like a mock scrape to set up a well-defined pattern of movement, except more attractive and exclusive to the daylight hours.

  40. Jody Snow on January 27, 2023 at 5:02 am

    There are times to bait and times not to bait! I like using bait early and set cameras up to track the deer in the area, but during the rut it’s just my wits against his wits and may the best man win!!!

  41. Kyle Casetta on January 27, 2023 at 5:04 am

    Baited for a long time before it was banned. Never seen or shot a 2 year old buck lots of little ones but nothing bigger. Never even seen one on camera from a corn pile. Does and small bucks only. Started planting food plots and mixing greens and grains ( clover, brassica, beans ) 3 plots one 2.5 acre field and bucks big small came out of everywhere to eat there. Not sure if just looks feels more natural as cropland to deer or what. My only 2 stands are on the field. My wife and dad both hunt the same 24 acres we got our spots and that’s it. Even with our higher pressure we see deer and a lot of them. But when we all had corn piles was a whole different story of fat squirrels and few deer sightings.

  42. Storm Crow on January 27, 2023 at 5:05 am

    I always just fly into to my bait spot. Low impact

  43. Noel Lillis on January 27, 2023 at 5:08 am

    Thanks For The response. Subscribed!

  44. Kokadjo Outdoors on January 27, 2023 at 5:10 am

    I only put out feed during winter mostly minerals now but did so for inventory of deer after season and during heavy snow winters. Only couple big bucks really fed at it mostly does and young bucks and very little pressure. But lot of people bait so not really productive in my eyes I just like pictures on camera to see what herd is like

  45. 5 Year Plan on January 27, 2023 at 5:11 am

    I love not baiting…… makes it more like….. Hunting! I was lucky enough to go on a hunt in south Texas…. that’s when I realized that baiting wasn’t for me. It’s kind of like picking a lobster out of a tank….You just don’t get the same satisfaction…. thanks for sharing your ethics and your knowledge.

  46. Tom LaLond on January 27, 2023 at 5:12 am

    Off topic, but I recently moved down to the Lacrosse WI area for work and to help with Kicking Bear Ministries down here. Ive grown up hunting in Northern Minnesota with ag and flatter land, and while trying to hunt public land down here has been a pretty good learning curve. Would you be willing to do a more indepth, public land tips series? Thanks!

  47. McMuskie on January 27, 2023 at 5:12 am

    Hunted hard for 3 days, zero action, 4th day a Doe was in the back by the shed, my brother said holy cow grab a gun, I said we’re not shooting it. There were 8 of us, me and my two sons agreed not to shoot. I explained that if we work hard it will be enjoyable to knock one down. Simply shooting it in the backyard is B/S and there’s no reward, just would be lame. We all agreed not to shoot. After 10-15min it walked off into the woods. Next day 3klms away we shot two! Thank god.

  48. Whitetails And Peterbilts Dylan on January 27, 2023 at 5:12 am

    Pa finally allows baiting up to 5 pounds but its just not for me dont feel right I bait for pictures before the season thats it

  49. BluSkhighs on January 27, 2023 at 5:12 am

    I Can’t bait in Massachusetts… Can’t imagine I’d feel too accomplished if I shot a buck over bait. Its cheating and lazy IMO

  50. corey potter on January 27, 2023 at 5:13 am

    bait is just a way for people who don’t know how to hunt to kill big deer lol. I have got big buck yearly with 0 bait, ny sucks other then their common sense rules including it being illegal to bait
