Is it legal to use live mice for bait?

I have mice destroying everything and i want to catch them and use them for bait mostly for largemouth bass

Answer

According to IDPA rules, “you can not use live bait” so, it would be illegal to use live mice as bait.  Dead “pinkies” would probably work just as well for bass.
