The 4-3 vote by the Natural Resources Commission means baiting will be legal again in most of the Lower Peninsula from Oct. 1 to Jan. 1. A baiting ban, however, will remain in place in a six-county area of northeast Michigan known as Deer Management Unit 487, the state's known Bovine TB Zone. It includes Alcona, Alpena, Iosco, Montmorency, Oscoda and Presque Isle counties. ..Bait could be "scattered" but not "piled" and the amount of bait could not exceed two gallons at any one hunting site.
