Guess what, through growth of poplar trees invading the ranch land, the ranchers, to keep the trees in check, and gave the cattle stop the trees, placed several salt blocks throughout this area. This same area is frequented by at times huge heards of Elk and White Tail deer. The Nature Conservatory of Canada involved.
    So before those opposed to our little spreads of bait with hay alphalfa mix, some apples, COB ...... Again NO comparison to the Texas Tower Drop station or those supplying feed year round.
    The crazy thing is we as hunters have a choice to bait and possibly screw things up. Some choose to take the baiting game to any level 1 pound of feed or 20 pounds.... does that make one ok and the other not.
    What you give a ungulate may be enough to kill it without even knowing. Predation, CWD, Body Digestive System, the list goes on.

    I guess until the effects are fully understood the questions will continue to haunt us all.

    Bownut..careful or you will get what you want. Low densities of ungulates to limit spread of cwd. Is that not the management strategy? Maybe we are already there?

    The short answer is no, but I am sure the scientists working for government would appreciate support for moving in that direction. I think there are three animal health specialist working for F&W, and one is on mat leave until this time next year, and of course we all know about the state of funding for F&W.
