Hmmm... wondering if those against baiting ever hunt over soybean,tobacco,sorghum,corn,clover or alfalfa fields. Or any other crop planted by farmers in your respective areas. Or maybe hunt stands of oak,beech or hickory trees. I hear the deer love the orange groves down south. Maybe hunt over known watering holes?
Since we know this is where the deer are going to feed or water, aren't we all using some type of food/water as bait???
In NY, it's illegal to hunt over baits. HOWEVER, all those things you listed are not baits. If they grow out of the ground "naturally", they are not considered baits. Using cut up apples, salt licks, piles of corn, etc. is considered baiting and will get you arrested in a hurry if you get caught.
