Just make sure that when you walk into the woods in the dark to your stand that there isnt any of that stuff laying around(left by another hunter!) could getsha into trouble!!

Is it illegal in the SE SRA? Not that I want to use it and wouldn't, but for folks that live there, is it illegal?
It's perfectly legal to use in the SE SRA on private land.

"It is now lawful to hunt or take deer on private lands only in the southeast special regulations areas (Bucks, Chester, Delaware,Montgomery and Philadelphia counties through the use of or taking advantage of bait"

I am from the other side of the state and not real familiar, howevre this statement leads me to believe that yes as long ad you meet the requirements as to amounts.


It is now lawful to hunt or take deer on private lands only in the
southeast special regulations areas (Bucks, Chester, Delaware,
Montgomery and Philadelphia counties) through the use of or
taking advantage of bait. Bait may be placed or distributed two
weeks prior to the opening of the first deer season and continue
until the deer seasons conclude. Bait accumulation in any one location
will not be permitted to exceed five gallons at any given time.

The baiting reg for the SRA needs to be renewed by April of next year or it is no more. It was brought into existence under a sunset provision that ends with the current seasons.

Just a FYI.

I have used it in Montgomery Co. SRA where it is legal to bait and the deer roto till the ground to get some. Now I am not saying that my results will be typical every where but the deer seem to find it and dig up the soil.
I would not use it exclusively or go out of my way to buy it as I would rather invest in a good food plot but if it were given to me I would not turn it down.

I'm very interested to see the outcome of if baiting stays or goes. there's been very mixed reviews of its effectiveness. I personally don't think its came close to doing what it was intended to do. just because you put food out, doesn't mean deer have to visit it during daylight hours. up untill our cornfields go down, our deer won't touch artificially placed food. the only thing messing with it are fawns. I'm sure when we start feeding this time of year, results will be different with a lot less available food. the deer have been digging through the snow to get to the cornfield. I would like to hear from somebody who has seen a positive effect from the SRA baiting, maybe in a non farming area.
