No.

If you're having trouble hunting for deer,
don't wish things were easier;
wish you were smarter.

It is not legal to hunt squirrels over bait at any time of year.

I didn't think so.... LOL... was just watching some guys argue about it saying that if you put feed out for deer, then hunt squirrels near it, it'd be legal..... My thought is that it's not legal to bait ANYTHING while hunting?

Baiting is allowed in the Southeast Special Regulations Area by permit only. Elsewhere in the state, it is unlawful to hunt in or around any area where artificial or natural bait, food, hay, grain, fruit, nuts, salt, chemicals or minerals, including their residues, are used, or have been used within the past 30 days, as an enticement to lure game or wildlife regardless of the type or quantity. Hunters are responsible for ensuring that the hunting area has not been baited before they begin hunting. They should physically inspect the area and question landowners, guides and caretakers. This section does not pertain to hunting near areas where accepted farming or habitat-management practices are taking place (example: hunting near food plots on game lands is legal). Any natural or man made nonliving bait can be used to attract coyotes for hunting or trapping.
