The Bait Debate
The use of bait for hunting big game animals has been widely criticized and praised for decades. There are both pros and cons to baiting, but it also raises some ethical questions.

Do you currently use bait, and if you don't and had the opportunity to, would you use bait? After a few replies, I'll weigh in with my own opinions, and support it with some scientific facts I've learned while studying wildlife populations.
