On March 31, Dana Ferguson of the Associated Press, wrote:
“Republican lawmakers say they hope to put an end date on deer-feeding bans that have kept some Wisconsin residents from the pastime, but a wildlife expert warns the practice could harm the animals.”

Wisconsin law currently prohibits the baiting and feeding of deer in 35 counties: those where CWD-infected deer have been found and adjacent counties.

Ferguson reported that the author of the bill, Rep. Adam Jarchow, R-Balsam Lake, proposed the legislation because some residents in his district enjoy feeding and watching deer, which they can no longer do because of the discovery of a single CWD-infected deer in Washburn County in 2012. That discovery led to a ban on all baiting and feeding of deer in Washburn, Barron, Polk and Burnett counties.

Ferguson quotes UW-Madison assistant professor of forestry and wildlife ecology Tim Van Deelen as saying the practice of feeding deer puts them at risk of contracting CWD.

    Pure baiting (not food plots) should be banned statewide

    I would much rather see no baiting or feeding statewide.

    Why? Neither practice is a good idea. Hunt deer – don’t lure them in. And people feeding deer is a problem from the get go. Leave the animals to be animals. Enjoy them, but they are not pets. –

    There aren’t a whole lot of deer up north to begin with. Year-round feeding has no doubt helped some survive the rough spring of 2013 and horrible winter of 2013-2014. It’s been done for decades. Not talking emergency feeding, but those who start and never stop.
