    They did outlaw it around here for a time as they did all baiting or feeding. They have eased up on that now.

    Maybe not always, but it's pretty hard to predict, IMO. Habituation is a huge issue- a few people in this thread are talking about it already. Grouping at feed also increases disease transmission, food dependence and other issues.

    For sure blindly feeding and not knowing what you are doing can have drastic effects and that is why most frown upon it and rightly so. Being raised around animals and knowing what can happen helps but today there are few who can say that.

    Once again today we had a half dozen bed near the house. Wife had to go to town so when she backed the car out they left. Strange though because one day she was outside and the UPS man came. The deer laid there and looked all the time. He was amazed but no, he can not hunt here.

    With most of the wolves gone, the deer population has exploded.

    Stanleyjohn, we have to declare war on those every summer too. It is amazing how many we have. To top it off, folks from the city or villages live trap them and turn them loose out in the country where, "they won't do any harm." Ha! Ever see a corn field after coons find it? One neighbor got rid of over 20 of them one summer and then his neighbor (renter) called him a couple afternoons later and said there were something like 24 of them in the yard right then. Way too many of them now and they are pests that can do a lot of damage.

    With all the deer around my house and the damage they due to the garden not to mention the number of deer car accidents in my area, add to that the limited deer hunt this year and the fact that MN now has a wolf hunt the deer population here is going to increase exp. That is until wasting disease wipes out most of them along with the cattle.
