This angers me in so many ways

I know all about this story, the dnr took samples of dirt yes dirt and there was a mineral supplement found in 3 spots but no sign of a actual mineral block. It is legal to put a mineral block out or any food to get trail cam pics and that is exactly what he did. The dnr trespassed on his property with no rhyme or reason, just walked out there and took samples, there was no issues with him shooting the deer until a douchebag of a neighboring property trespassed as well and said he saw mineral blocks which were taken off the property before hunting season started. Mineral blocks do dissolve in rain and the liquid obviously goes Into the ground otherwise known as dirt, Iowa dnr are nothing but a bunch of idiots who do nothing to help hunting and just want to steel hunters prize possessions to hang on their own wall.

I will tell you Baiting is Baiting and its against the law in Iowa. It is not in some States as Baiting is allowed. So for me it's a regulation and Law but not some high moral ground.
Like it or not it's how the Law is written, even after it has been removed it still can constitue baiting.
Now here the real question when food plots are legal and Baiting is Illegal, where is the moral ground for fair chase ?
A stand of corn in the Timber or a 5 gallon pail of apples ? What's the moral difference.
Both are a lure to attract Deer. The same as a Mineral Block.
