Default RE: Turkey baiting

That is news to me. I thought if it were a planted plot you could hunt over it. What if you planted clover for turkeys, does this mean you can't hunt over it either? I assume this only applies to turkeys and not deer. If that's the case, we're all breaking the law.

HEY GUYS -

I just called the state and I am awaiting a return call from a biologist to answer this question for us - I sure would hate to see someone get fined orlose there gun, rights to hunt in FL, etc over wrong info. :nonono

However, for what it is worth - I have always understood that it was ok to hunt something along these lines as long as there was annual growth and not just seasonal -as this would make it "baiting" - however, continual year around planting is not considered "baiting" - hope to have an answer today.....but it is 16:20 their time so who knows! :banghead

Oh and by the way - if you would like I could put up the guys name and number that I call in Tallahassee, he is actually in in management at Licensing and Permitting...he was out today, but I spoke with a woman there in the office, which is who provided me with the biologist's number....I would not think this would be a problem as it is what he does for a living....

Good job 7mm, I did the samething the other day. I took advantage of the "askmyfwc.com" link and asked them here is the responce I got back this morning...

<TABLE cellSpacing=0 cellPadding=2 width="100%" border=0><TBODY><TR><TD class=text bgColor=#c6d3ba>Response (HGM-TY)</TD><TD class=text align=right bgColor=#c6d3ba></TD></TR><TR><TD class=text colSpan=2>Hunting turkeys over a planted <SPAN class=yshortcuts id=lw_1229374040_2 style="BACKGROUND: none transparent scroll repeat 0% 0%; CURSOR: hand; BORDER-BOTTOM: #0066cc 1px dashed">food plot is just fine, no matter what you have planted. What would be considered "baited" is if you threw corn, soybeans or chufa on the ground. In other words, if it is planted, then it is NOT baiting. If you scatter seed on top of the ground, then it IS baiting.</TD></TR><TR><TD class=text bgColor=#a0c4de>Customer (David)</TD><TD class=text align=right bgColor=#a0c4de></TD></TR><TR><TD class=text colSpan=2>I have looked through all the reference material I can find and I have yet to determine if it is considered baiting to hunt turkey over a food plot that has Chufa grass that is intended to attract turkey. Can I please get a definative answer? I'd hate to have to pay a big fine, lose my guns and or lose my hunting opportunities because the answer that I'm looking for has not been published or is open to interpretation of a judge. Thank you kindly, David</TD></TR></TBODY></TABLE>
