Deer Baiting and Bears?

Thread starter #1
You're sitting in your tree stand with a pile of corn 30 yards away. A bear walks in and starts eating the corn.

Can you legally shoot?

Your sitting in your stand a week after deer season hunting hogs.
The biggest buck of your life walks in.

legally, no. But maximum fine is $5000 and a trip to Canada to hunt black bears over bait will cost close to that.

True... But you get to keep the bear. Caught killing a bear over bait in Ga all you get is in trouble...no hide, skull or meat

What if your sitting on corn and a bear ambles by at a distance in no way interested in the corn?

It is illegal to hunt bear over any baited site... If you want to hunt bear - do not bait at all.
