Ban On Supplemental Feeding of Deer Now In Effect

The annual ban on feeding of deer began September 1 and runs through January 1, 2011.
Some hunters feed deer between hunting seasons to provide an additional food source and provide much needed minerals that may not be available in the natural food sources in some areas.

Between September 1st and January 1st, the Department of Game and Inland Fisheries considers this feeding to be "baiting," and is illegal statewide. This prohibition does not include the planting of agronomic crops or wildlife food plots however which are still legal during the season.
