We have taken our dogs on traditional hay rides for 11 years and they love it. We use the hay for as many weeks as we can and cover it with a tarp when not in use to protect it from the deer and elk and rain. The deer and elk still manage to pull the tarp off sometimes which is not baiting. Please be sure when you send the "elk baiting" photo that you send this one along with it to the DOW.
To our other readers, this is about the only exercise some potential trouble makers get by jumping to conclusions. You can generally tell who they are because they prefer to conceal their name under "anonymous" submissions. Anonymous should you want to try to stir up trouble in the future - save yourself the time, just go ahead and call the DOW and then I will learn of your identity through the DOW. No further trouble maker comments will be posted here.
