Bait classification from a birds eye view and set

What is considered bait as far as what can and can not be seen from the air? I was thinking about getting some DP and the visible bait came to mind. Stuffing marshmellos covered with honey or syrup is bait that can be seen from above. Or what about baiting a live trap. What about sardines sprinkled on the ground or small pieces of meat. Do birds of prey know what these are from afar? Now if had feathers or fur on the ground I can understand. But the others as I have mention? Any help on this as to be legal?

I am a blind setter as as such I do not know the finer points of the exposed bait law. I would suggest you contact a WCO.

I trap mink because I don't know any better

I cover my marshmallow with foil on the dp's. That prevents any argument about exposed bait, gives it more eye appeal and also keeps the mice out.

Re: Bait classification from a birds eye view and set

The bait from the air is there to keep a bird of prey from swooping down and landing in a trap. Something like laying a live mouse on the ground, or using a squirrel tail sticking OUT of a dirthole that can be seen. Stuffing bait in a DP, PVC set, or down a dirthole makes it not visible from the air. You need to come in and investigate the set in order to "smell it out".
