    Taking that one to the grave eh Appleknocker?
    I am torn whether to believe your "faultless" reporting or the other 6 reputable people that were in the room I talked to, including the man you "quoted", that report exactly the opposite which, BTW, explained why "you couldn't believe your ears".:(

    Was this something that was actually said at the meeting?

    Appleknocker can verify with is recording but, one guy that testified said his friend was a deer processor that had to give it up when the bait ban took effect because EVERY deer that came in was gut shot because, apparently, his clients weren't capable of making a clean shot on any deer that wasn't standing perfectly still on a bait station.:(
    What I'd like to know is...did this deer processor take advantage of the 99 weeks of unemployment insurance when the bait ban put him out of work?:D
    I wonder if 6" figured this stat into the negative economical impact of the bait ban?
    Life is stranger than fiction.:rolleyes:

    I thought that the context of that statement was:

    cant bait, the deer dont stand still, (so they are moving) and they all get shot in in the guts.

    To imply, if they could use bait, then the deer would stand still and they could shoot them in the chest......

    I am thinking you hear what you want to hear because that is not what was said. You should go over the video again and listen real good.

    Q....or heck, '6inch'......either one of you got a link to this?

    "I wonder if 6" figured this stat into the negative economical impact of the bait ban?

    Would love to see such an analysis.

    Wonder if some of those folks would apply that same standard to all of the bear "shooters" that we have in Michigan. :confused:

    There are options when it comes to Bear hunting, baiting is the easiest of them.

    Years ago I had the opportunity to take over a Bear and Moose hunting operation in Canada. Making the swap involved him working his last Moose season with me, so I could get the ins and outs of that. As for the Bear Season, I would just take it over, not like it takes any real skill, put out bait, shoot Bears when they come to eat it.

    My wife shot it down when she learned that in an emergency, with the aid of a helicopter we could get to the hospital in 3 hours.:D

    I feel the same way about those that sit in a nice warm box overlooking their food plot. I don't let it bother me...their choice.

    Mr. Morang:

    This is a little off the subject but I'm just curious if I heard it wrong when Mr. Mason seemed to say that baiting "is the reason there's TB in Michigan?"

    So can we assume then that you are one of those who would say that anyone hunting bear over bait is merely a "shooter", not a hunter?

    How about this guy sitting in his blind overlooking his food plot, is he a "shooter" or a "hunter"? Is there some tangible ethical difference resulting from hunting over food, if the roots are still attached?
