Trapping is legal in certain WMAs and the Chattahoochee National Forest with a Commercial Trapper's permit. But baiting is illegal on WMAs and National Forests. Is trapping an exception or can I only use scent attractants?
(2) Set, place, or bait any trap for the purpose of taking any wildlife upon the land or in the waters adjoining the land of any other person, except during the open trapping season for such wildlife, and then only after obtaining the written consent of the owner of the land, which written consent shall be carried upon the trapper's person while engaged in trapping;
The state owns the property therefore if they give permission it’s legal to bait it
