    It's more than just CWD, and they don't eat from one pile when they herd up. At feeding station EVERY deer eats from the same pile. Feeding stations draw them away from good wintering yards.

    Yes, you are probably right. But it wasn't until the onset of CWD that the DNR decided to take a stance against feeding deer. I don't feed them, and I don't hunt them anymore either. I just take their picture and hit one once in awhile with my car. :-(

    Hmmmm . . . having "hunted" a few with a Jeep Wrangler I can attest that getting a deer steak with a vehicle can sometimes make for a pretty pricey deer steak . . . even if it is pre-tenderized with the bumper and seasoned with road salt. ;)

    You got that right Jake! Have hit a deer with every car I own.....with the old Comanche wood-haulin' pickup, twice!
