    Just get a letter of permission from the owner, if you have any worry. The reg says you can basicly pour bait on the guy's backdoor if you have written permission. Ok maybe not quite that close, but you get the idea.
    Take the warning labels off. Darwin will solve the problem.

    A bear coming to your deer bait, is fair game as long as you have a licence and season is open. The bear baiting Regs specifically say “bait for the purposes of bear hunting”. Your deer bait does not meet that criteria.
    It all boils down to “intent”.
    If you are concerned, contact your area CO. He/she would be more than happy to assist you.

    From the Regs.....
    [COLOR=#505050]61.1 (1) A person who places bait for the purpose of bear hunting shall comply with the following requirements:
    [COLOR=#505050]1. Bait must not be placed within 500 metres of a dwelling, unless written permission is obtained from the owner of the dwelling.
    [COLOR=#505050]2. Bait must not be placed within 500 metres of a public building.
    [COLOR=#505050]3. Bait must not be placed within 200 metres of,
    [COLOR=#505050]i. a right of way for public vehicular traffic, or
    [COLOR=#505050]ii. a recreational trail that,
    [COLOR=#505050]A. is established and maintained by an organization for the general public, and
    [COLOR=#505050]B. is reasonably signposted and marked as a trail. O. Reg. 37/16, s. 7 (1
    The key words in 61.1(1) is "for the purpose of bear hunting......" If he's clearly hunting Deer,he's good to go.

    All good unless intent is to target bears. I also hope to see bears in a couple weeks.

    I know, I am just saying that he can also just get written permission as allowed by the Regs. He is targeting deer, so he is fine, he has written permission to have a bait pile close to the house, double fine.

    I agree with getting the written permission. Seems like a simple way to be insured even if not necessary. Cheap way that may save a trip to court.

    I would email a co and get the answer right from the horses mouth. If it's ok keep that email in case another co has a different Interpretation.

    I think if you leave your bear tag at home you will be 100% safe. Like risk sais, it boils down to intent. if you don't have a bear tag you clearly have no intent of hunting bear.
