So letís say you dump 40 gallons of apples a day all through summer, then sept 1 comes along and you change it up to 5 gallons a day and suddenly a tree stand appears in the maple tree over the Apple pile... does that constitute intent?

Now it gets a little gray. I would say there could be a problem because there is intent to hunt generally, but that intent is for a future time. If no intent at the time the bate is put down, perhaps no violation. I would argue that intent must be assessed at the time the violation is alleged. But more importantly the statute clearly says that it is unlawful to hunt....so first thing they have to prove is that you were hunting.

Like another said, if you have no license, and no present means to hunt, then the first element of hunting cannot be established. However, it is my understanding that the definition of hunting is very broad so that should be looked at for guidance.

I think it is legal to bait coyotes.

I'm pretty sure that bear, upland birds, waterfowl, and turkey are the only species you can't bait in WA?

I'm pretty sure you can bait bobcat, cougar, coyote, and fox.

So if I put out ten gallons of peanut butter, molasses, jelly donuts and candies and spray it with anise oil and vanilla extract for attracting deer and elk, can I shoot a bear over the bait if he happens to come calling?

No. Further more if your hunting deer over apples or anything thatís accidentally attracting bears. They could charge you with bear baiting just for having a bear tag in your pocket.
