Michigan’s Legislature has given final approval to a bill that would lift a state ban on using bait to hunt deer, but it faces a veto from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. Baiting deer and elk is prohibited throughout the entire Lower Peninsula and parts of the Upper Peninsula under a ban that was initially approved by the state Natural Resources Commission in 2018 to combat the spread of chronic wasting disease.
