    TS, the DNR did NOT ban baiting. I hunt exclusively in the UP and asking hunters to be carefull is NOT banning.

    Tony, you got me there!

    As far as I can recall, they've live streamed 3-4 times over the last couple years. Usually just a portion of the day when there is a "big" issue on the table. Unless they are hiding cameras someplace that I don't know about. Which could be the case.....

    A lot of good that did all the guys who were already in camp and off the "grid" so to speak. Fortuanately I heard about it from a friend downstate when I went into town and got my voicemails.

    DNR RAP LINE, CAN I HELP YOU?
    ah ah yea, I'm standing in this here bait pile and this here poacher didn't chop his sugar beets in to 1 inch pieces, these are all 2 inches.
    SIR DID YOU SAY YOU WERE STANDING IN A BAIT PILE?
    yea, I saw where some poacher had been parking and followed his path to see if he was complying with the law, I keep your rap line on speed dial in my droid.
    OK THEN, WELL HOW DO YOU KNOW THAT THE PIECES ARE 2 INCHES?
    I measured them, I always keep a tape measure in my pocket so I can help and catch these here poachers.
    SIR, GET A LIFE

    Large butcher knife, machete, hatchet.
    The butcher knife works great.
    A bag of beet will fit into a 6-gallon pail if chopped to 2 or 3 inches.
    That same bag will fit into a 5-gallon pail when chopped to 1-inch cubes.

    I think that I know what you used for your 2 inch ruler :D

    Simple solution is move to the UP and hunt, you can feed all the Jays & Ravens hoping that a lost deer strolls by !

    Now THAT is the kind of "science" that I believe the NRC commissioners are looking for.
    Did your kid win at the science fair?:D

    Actually they did ban baiting in the U.P. They told everyone not to put more bait out on or about Nov. 16. They also said that on Dec. 1 that they would start enforcing the baiting ban law. They also told hunters in counties that boarder WI to bring harvested deer into check stations for CWD testing starting on or about Nov. 16. I was up there then when it all went down. They didn't tell hunters to be carefull, rather they started to put in place a baiting/feeding ban based on no hard CWD evidence what so ever. Thankfully the game farm deer tested negative for CWD, but the DNR still looked awfully bad the way they handled the situation. The funny thing is that when the deer test results came back negative, everyone was so releaved that they did not hold the DNR accountable for their actions.

    I reviewed the recording again and he never said anything of the sort.

    Perhaps we are not talking about the same person.

    Perhaps.. somebody said it though. Was hard to decipher over the coughing and hacking going into the commissioner's microphones. Somebody should tell them to turn off their mike when not speaking. Even then, some of them should keep their mike turned off even while speaking! :lol:

    I think that the guy who said it was Dan Nameth, I use to work with him until he retired. Balding, short, glasses, hearing aid on the left ear (never saw the right ear).

    Someone earlier ask who the sixth speaker was, it was Dale Sheltrown from the Gladwin area.

    It was the twelth speaker who said and I quote, "Hunters don't bait, just shooters do", and supported food plots on state land but not two gallons of enticements. His name was Richard Hanson. He wore a green plaid wool hat and his wife spoke after him and suggested a special license to sell bait. She was followed by Jeffery D. Jager (sp) who spoke of the "scofflaws who complain about the state making them villians and outlaws because they want to use bait", then referred to them as irresponsible. He also claimed he did a survey of twenty-six people who ranged in age from twenty to seventy-two and 100% of them were against baiting. He claimed to be an instructor for the International Bow-Hunters Education Foundation and taught his students that baiting was UNETHICAL in any form.

    Why am I so sure of this? Because after my faultless report of Dr. Russ Mason in Grand Rapids and the hoopla it caused, I now RECORD every meeting I attend and I attend them all!

    P.S. Dan Neymouth did also distinguish between Sportsmen and shooters.
