Re: Baiting Fines & Penalties
Someone in a green jacket may well show them the errors in that thinking?
Some years ago we had an odd little feller show up at our sportsmen's club as a new member. He was from down south, forget now which state? Met him a few times, thought he was a tad weird.
About a month and a half before archery season, a member called one night to let me know they'd seen the guy carrying sacks of apples and other things, off into our woods on several evenings. Took me some time to catch up to the guy and find out what he'd been doing.
He'd decided to give PA bow hunting a whirl and had been building bait piles in several areas that looked like good spots for his opening day stand. Figured he'd check them out and put his stand at the spot that had the most "deer sign".
I explained that it was illegal, told him he had two days to remove the stuff or face explusion from the club. He got a bit excited, said it was perfectly okay where he came from, couldn't understand why it wasn't okay in PA.
When I asked him if he'd read the book that came with his PA license, he said no. He already knew how to hunt, didn't need to read how. We never saw him again after that one year. Don't miss him.
