[quote user="midem"]This bill gives the "authority" to the DNR to implement a baiting ban[/quote]
Actually, it gives the DNR authority to extend the ban passed it's sunset. Thank you for pointing us back to the bill itself.
HSUS is all over this thread like squirrels on a pile of corn.
and as i'm sure most others on this page have assumed bugman is probably somebody who makes a profit off baitpiles either by selling the bait or through guided hunts using bait piles. anybody who cares about the deer population in MI would not sacrifice the long term health of the herd for one or two seasons of better hunting. Don't you want future generations to be able to hunt deer in Michigan or do you only care about yourself?
