I know this is a practice from across the pond but over here im not so sure.
On one of my stalking areas ive been well aware of a high seat about 150 yards over the boundary facing into one of my woods, fair game yes but infront of the seat and only about 75 yards from the wood edge is a 50 gallon drums cut in half and both full of grain.
Not the type for pheasant feeders but lids off and sat on the ground set out with only one purpose to entice the fallow out of my wood.
I wouldnt be that bothered if it wasnt for the fact that there is a cracking small valley which always has Fallow feeding and would make for some cracking stalking wihout the need to bait.
The sport is in the stalk for me as is with the majority thankfully but I would be interested to hear if others out there are baiting infront of high seats.
