Is Sow urine considered bait

jimglassjimglass Posts: 130 Deckhand
Planning to hunt wild hogs on some Florida WMA's where baiting is not allowed. I would still like to use some kind of attractant to hunt the hogs. Would sow urine be legal to use. How about the water from soured corn?
I think bait by definition needs to be an edible item, right? Any recommendations on a legal bait substitute?
Thanks, Jim

    So the question is, is sent bait? I am thinking not.
