When you realize that the guys around are setting out deer corn by the ton, you have a choice. You can refuse to follow suit—and plan on not seeing, or killing, many deer. Or you can step onto the merry-go-round and start baiting, too. But be warned: Once you start, it’s just about impossible to stop. Stopping would mean you’d spent all that hard-earned money for naught. What’s the answer? Spend more. You have to put out at least as much corn out as the other guy to keep up. And more if you want to win. So which is it? Did you come here to win or not? Oh what the hell? It’s in the name of hunting, which you love. So if the other guy ups the ante, you see his bet and raise him another ton. And now you’re the baiter drawing the deer off some other non-baiter’s land. So that guy starts in—and round and round we go.
