But you have to pay $16 a year for the permit ($51 for out of state hunters). Texas could really reduce those property taxes if they decided to charge for baiting as well. grin

Didn't know this. Always figured my local feed store factored in tax with the price. Good to know!

I just texted a buddy of mine that hunts his family place in Alabama. He was caught twice baiting and lost his hunting license in Texas as well last year. It also cost him 3K. Its fun to give him a hard time. He does get his license back next year. Hes killed some nice ones over there too.

That's a broad statement. Please elaborate. Feel free to use capitalization and periods, when the time feels right.

Exactly. Land prices sky rocketing causing less land available to lease due to sales to absentee wealthy landowners. Nothing wrong with that but that is how it's done here. What does feeding corn have to do with it? There are more deer than ever here btw.

Guys I know from MS didn't exactly follow the baiting rules anyway. Opening days sounds insane there compared to anywhere in TX. I worked in AL one week and said WTF to their deer hunting practices years ago.

That's why I hunted Tennessee. My boss is in a club and you had to be careful another member didn't secretly dump corn and the GW caught you hunting over it.

When I lived next door in Mississippi as a kid, I always thought it was funny how hunters refused to see their food plots as being bait.

If you plant, place, or position a food source to attract deer for harvest, it's bait.

No, not a drive by. Just didn't feel the need in going on for pages about whether or not shooting a deer under a corn sprinkler with cameras all over it is really "hunting" or not.

there's a better chance of tpwd outlawing baiting deer before they would consider bringing that back. Can you imagine the whining that that would bring on? lol

There was a helluva lotta whining when they outlawed it too. 'Had a customer in San Augustine that was all kinds of pissed off. Deep East Texas is a whole 'nother country, no matter what others on here say.

You do know know the beginning of sentences are supposed to be capitalized, right?

If I could run them with dogs that might make deer hunting fun again. I have never done it. I only kill a deer if it comes by the house while Im cooking.

Im not a fan of sitting in a blind watching a feeder. Thats no fun for me unless I have a kid sitting with me so I can watch him get fired up about killing one. Deer hunting has turned into a game I dont like to play anymore. I still like to go and have more fun than anyone being the camp cook, but whitetail hunting isnt what it used to be. Its so easy now they even let girls do it. That was the only good thing about tent camping, no one brought their wife more than once, unless they were the kind of chic you really wanted to hang out with. Ive done the guiding for nice lodges with great food and had a hell of a time putting people on nice deer, but I dont care if I ever kill another whitetail. I still like to eat them though.

Mule deer hunting is another story.
