The information stated in my long post above is not wrong in any fashion. Every single aspect of what I stated was taken directly, often word for word, from the current MDWFP Nuisance Animal hunting regulations. Anyone can read them verbatim at the MWDFP website and verify the accuracy of my information.
The MDWFP laws on wild hog hunting do not define what is or is not a "grain or grain product." If corn is classified as a grain then it can in fact be used as hog bait inside a live trap exactly as I stated. If corn is not classified as a grain or grain product, then it can be used any other way as a hog bait.
You tell me if corn is classified by the MDWFP as a grain or grain product and I will then tell you which of the two ways stated in the law it can be legally used. Corn absolutely HAS to be one or the other, ie. either it is or is not a grain or grain product. Which ever way you classify it, corn CAN INDEED be used directly as a hog bait. It absolutely DOES NOT have to be fed from a covered feeder in EITHER case when used as a hog bait. It can be poured directly on the ground, put in any sort of container, etc. and DOES NOT have to be fed, as stated by reesguide, in conformance to the supplemental feeding rules for deer.
Essentially, when it comes to hog hunting ANYTHING edible can be used as hog bait. There is NOTHING prohibited by the game laws from being used as a hog bait. The only restriction is that grains and grain products must be placed inside a live hog trap. The point I am making here is that you can still use any sort of grain as a hog bait. When grains are placed inside a live hog trap that keeps deer or similar animals from getting to the grains.
John, the person who is wrong here is you, not me. Corn can be used as hog bait and it does NOT have to be fed to hogs in conformance with the supplemental deer feeding rules.
