Can't say I've ever done it, can't say I ever will. Although I do know enough about it to know it's nothing like shooting fish in a barrel. Although that might be pretty hard too....dealing with the refraction and all.

Just pointing out that you slamming a legal hunting method on the internet does more harm than good for all hunting period.

I always start on the wrong foot, the other ones usally in my mouth.

If you can't kill 'em without baiting...then let 'em walk!!!

For those who have never shot bear over bait, your missing a very exciting time. I was somewhat leary of shooting bear over bait myself, but having multiple bears inside 25 yards, being false charged with sow and cubs near by and having a bear start up the tree your in makes for a very awesome hunt. I'd do it again in a heart beat, total thrilling rush, after all isn't that a big part of why we hunt with stick and string? keep an open mind, heck we could argue that shooting whitetail with a gun at 200 yards is not sporting, but that just does all our hunting brothers harm. If it's legal, it's legal. I don't personaly care for rifle hunting, but I have those hunters back every time. DFA
I became a hunter the day I put down the gun and picked up the bow.

Amen to THAT!!! We don't need people within our ranks belittling a legal way of hunting..especially if they have never experienced the method. If you don't like it and it's not for you fine, just don't bad mouth others,,we have enough of that from anti groups. An opinion can be stated in a classy,diplomatic way, especially if others don't know you.

Not against hunting and not against hunting within the legal boundaries of the sport. I would rather take an animal at 200 yd with my rifle; there's a bit of skill in doing that; but that's just me. Enjoy your baited hunt.

Cool, enjoy your 200 yard shots, animal will never know you were even there. You can get away with a lot of movement and noise too. Good luck for a successful hunt........ DFA

Really you think you can't spook a deer at 200 yards? you must scare a lot of them away before you even get to your stand/blind. I've seen them turn and run the same as if you were within 50 yards. Same with smell, if the wind changes direction even at that distance or greater they'll spook. Most of the deer I take is within 30-75 yards but hey if you can lay them out clean at 200 take the shot.
