Farmer planted corn. Corn flooded and didn't make very good. Farmer is claiming on insurance and has not harvested anything to date. Water is flooded back up into some of the corn. Teal everywhere. Is it baited?

No, if it's still standing. I've seen them hunt ducks in flooded corn on TV

No. Unless you manipulate it in any manner that is outside of natural agricultural practices.

When getting the birds be sure not to knock down any of the stalks, some GW's will consider that baiting, same goes for the dog, real silly gray area. I am sure if fought in court it will be dismissed.

Call the local GW in your area if he or she is civil they will be straight with you! unlike some guys last year outside of
Katy area, were slammed with 2100$ fines on teal season last year...... they threw down corn and milo in givien areas.....

kinda hard to beat that charge.....

Me, i would not hunt that area...... not worth my time and money for the hassle......


gud luck.....

I'd hunt the heck out of it. You'd be doing NOTHING wrong.

HUNT IT! this is no different than purposely planting it, and then pumping water on it ten days before the season. the only thing you have to watch on insurance crops is in some instances when they disc the crops under as discing a pretty mauture grain crop is not a normal practice. and hogflyer, people throwing grain out of a sack in no shape form or fashion compares to hunting a standing crop that is NOT manipulated that has been flooded.

Discing the crop under is required to collect crop insurance, so it is normal ag practice. I wouldn't worry about it.

Just ask local game warden. Document fields prior to hunt. Photograph fields. get a handwritten note from landowner that explains history of this seasons corn crop. Look on internet and get weather history to substantiate the crop history. Photograph adjacent fields.....

There is no need to get a game warddn after you! Not worth it! Better off communicating, being open, being honest....

Definitely not baited. I had several milo fields that were flooded a couple years ago during teal season. It falls under normal agricultural practice. The GW in my area confirmed. Same as when we plant milo and insure it if the crop is not good, then bail it or shred it to bail it and hunt over it. Falls under normal ag practice. Get after it!
