As one mans signature says "just cause it's legal doesn't make it right bail out".

talkin about luck. ive never went in before light and sit on top of a corn pile. that has to mean that bird was ment to be killed. god guided you through the dark to that corn pile. naw im just joking i probably wouldnt shoot if i was unsure about the legality of it.

None of these choices.
 
If you go to an out-of-state hunt and havn't fully read the rules and regulations and know whether or not baiting or other actions are illegal or not, then you don't belong in those state's woods anyway.  I can't believe that some people actually go on hunts to another state without fully understanding or knowing their laws.  It's incompetancy at it's best.  If you end up shooting the turkey and a CO gives you a ticket for hunting and killing over bait, then so be it, another ignorant hunter gets what he deserves.  Everyone makes their own bed and subsequently should sleep in it.  Being lazy is no excuse for not respecting the laws of the land.  Read up before you cross state lines, that's my answer.

C, even if it is legal, it's unethical.

I would have to also say E, none of the above. Like most of you said, I wouldn't set up there just because the farmer said there was a blind there. Get him to shock gobble on the roost, evaluate your situation, then take action. Also that was a bad situation, because the corn would, A. have been eaten, or B. rotten. If it was a fresh pile of corn, I would have left and set up somewhere else. -Kevin
