I'd hammer the place until nothing ever came back, and not worry one bit. If folks can get away with flooding the fields, using electric ice eaters, and charging cash, then I'd say 'my property, my rules'. Getting to where I don't give a rat's A anymore.
Big difference between standing corn, and chopping up kernels to leave scattered across the ground.

It was probably a field of sweet corn that the processor who had a contract with the farmer to buy, passed up. They do that sometimes if the corn is no good or it freezes making the corn bad. Neighbors sweet corn tasted like crap according to my brother because of all the smoke we had in September. Wine grapes also got tainted because of the smoke.

 :yeah: If you want the correct answer, call the DFW. Lots of guys sounding off here with nothing to lose because they're not hunting those fields.  :dunno:

If any corn remains on the ground from the tilling, it would be considered a baited field.  The field is considered baited until 10 day's after final removal of all said corn.  I know several different groups that have received tickets for the same thing. 
One of the corn fields they created a corn maze and after Halloween, they tilled it all under.  Guys setup and shot a bunch of geese on it and they were all ticketed for hunting a baited field.  Two years loss of hunting priviledges.  Your call on that one.  Best one, would be contact the local warden and see what he thinks as it is up to the discretion of the game warden.  You can also get ticked for hunting adjacent fields if it is the zone of influence.
Cut em!

Well you sure would never know it was illegal to hunt the edges of alfalfa fields during archery season with the number tree stand and blinds that get put up.

Because itís not. Baiting ducks is a federal offense, baiting deer/elk is legal.

Dont ask just one wdfw officer, ask three or more. Its amazing how often those guys disagree on the game regs and the hunter ends up getting paper dropped on him.

Hunt away! If it was illegal why does the WDFW sponsored hunting areas the plant and "bait ducks" in Skagit at the DU plot of land.  They leave whole corn stalks up, wheat/barley fields and bean fields unharvested.  They also have an island/game reserve they do do the same to in lower Skagit.  It's not wrong to hunt a planted field.  The rule states if it was harvested within 10 days then it is illegal.  Outside those first 10 days, it's open and fair game.

Thatís not what the regs say.  10 days after all bait is removed.

Itís legal to hunt if you leave it, not legal if you knock it to the ground.  WDFW plants and leaves it.

You can hunt a harvested field the next day if you want.

An alfalfa field before harvest isn't bait. If you harvested the alfalfa and left piles of it out for the deer, then it's bait. Corn that's been tilled under not as a result of harvesting is bait. If there's standing corn after an actual harvest and you pluck the corn and throw it out in the spread, that is also baiting. This is my understanding from hunting WDFW land with corn grown.

Why not check with the DFW? Nothing to lose. There's a lot to lose without checking. :dunno: This is one case where asking for permission is far more desirable than asking for forgiveness.
