I hunt in alabama, and I think it should be legal. I live in louisiana and it is legal here. We do not hunt over bait in al., but we do put some out during the offseason when we get a chance, just to help with horn devolpment. I am all for legalizing BUT regulating it. I mean for instance, the way the law is now, you cannot put out corn, but you can hunt a planted corn feild, after it has been knocked down, go figure. Our old lease used to be all planted feilds we leased from a sharecropper, now we have property owned by the paper company, two totally different types of hunting.
