    here in east tx some people have been soaking corn in diesel ,for baiting hogs.....so coons wont eat it all. this practice imo is stupid. yes they might eat it but the effects of the diesel will be there after the corn is gone ....please dont try this , contaminating a hunting area is ethically wrong ,let alone ''illegal'' if you lease your property. if you own your piece of heaven,you can do what you will, but that buck of a lifetime will probably shy away from this area thats been ''dieselized ''

    Now that just seems like that would be a waste of meat to me and a waste of expensive diesel, I would think it would taste funny if they ate it. But I'm with you so I'd be against it too.

    Yep, some guys put diesel on the corn to "prevent the coons from eating it". My hog hunting friend just had to try it too. He put one quart of diesel in about 100 pounds of corn and the hogs refused to eat it.

    Not only is that stupid it is wrong on so many different levels.

    1. trying to poison animals is wrong and in many cases illegal.
    2. Waste of good diesel which is costly.
    3. Pollutes the area.

    Who ever is doing this needs to be kicked in the junk till it turns black falls off then it should be shoved in their mouth.

    This is the dumbest thing I've read in a LOOOONG time. I hope the Fish and wildlife service finds out about this, and really lets these guys have it. When you set corn out, there are other creatures that are going to eat that corn, too. NOT JUST YOUR TARGET ANIMAL! DEAL WITH IT!

    To the folks that are practicing this stupid method, might I suggest you cease to hunt? You set a bad example as hunters, outdoors-men and human beings in general. :mad:

    and +100 for what Tango said ;)

    Would that make the hog cook faster or more evenly?

    I don't know a real hunter that would do this. The harm to wildlife is there long after the corn is gone. And every hunter I know tries to preserve the land. Keeps the hunting good and you are hard pressed to find someone that appreciates nature more than a hunter.

    Many hunt..Not all of them are hunters though....

    In Delaware we are allowed to shoot over a baited area for deer. (We have no feral hogs here) (rednecks love bacon). But anyway when you bait an area you should know that atleast half your corn is going to be lost due to colateral damage due to squirrels, turkeys, etc. I never thought of using petroleum products to enhance the flavor and reduce the cooking times of wild game I hunt. Damn it once again those Texians have beaten us to the punch! Are there really any good ideas left to come up with?

    Is it actually diesel fuel or bio diesel? Bio diesel is normally made from left over cooking oil (cotton seed or other natural oil) that is not a petro product.

    dieselized corn

    no ......its diesel good ol $3.06 a gallon diesel ....i wish people would just think...because there is such a controversy over baiting , the anti 's dont need more things to put in their bag of tricks. baiting is legal in texas ,but wont be for long if people continue to do stupid sh-t like this

    Yeah he did say East Texas. I've never heard of this practice and if it is going one it's just wrong. However, I can tell you it won't stop the deer from coming around. They chewed right thru the delivery hose on my diesel tank to the point that diesel was flowing out. Now that's a waste of good diesel!!!

    I too have heard of some guy's doing this,but I personally think it would be very stupid to poison the game that you are wanting to take and eat yourself.
    Plus,poision every other animal that also decides to eat some of the soaked corn.

    I know guys who spray their fishing lures with WD-40, so I guess I could see this working...
