MAJOR CHANGES & IMPORTANT INFORMATION
For the 2018-2019 Seasons and Bag Limits
You WILL Get a Ticket if You:
Hunt Over Bait:

Despite false information and rumors, no changes have been made to the state’s baiting law (9-11-244). The practice of hunting game animals by the aid of bait remains illegal in this state and violations of this law will continue to be enforced.

AREA DEFINITION IS IN EFFECT

Despite what many have heard or seen on social media, the “Baiting Bill” did not pass this year. The “Area Definition” is still in effect. Regulation 220-2- .157, “as it applies to the hunting of deer and feral swine, there shall be a rebuttable presumption that any bait or feed located beyond 100 yards from the hunter and not within the line of sight of the hunter, is not a lure, attraction, or enticement to, on, or over the area where the hunter is attempting to kill or take the deer or feral swine. “Not within the line of sight” means being hidden from view by natural vegetation or naturally occurring terrain features.” The area definition does not apply on public land or for any other game animal such as turkey. During turkey season, all feed must be removed or consumed at least 10 days prior to hunting. (pg 25)

Prohibited Methods of Hunting:
It is ILLEGAL to:

Hunt any area where baiting/feeding has occurred until 10 days after all bait/feed has been removed or consumed. (pg 54)
