I would be very careful how you bait, if you do. It is not clear what state or urban density you're in. I would be very concerned in a suburban/small town setting if there were a chance kids or pets could get to the bait.
On the other hand a shot from the 22 (or .243) is likely less of a risk than baiting.
I'd check on your local laws first.
