Deer Feeding Ban in Oneida County

Deer Feeding Ban in Oneida County (as reported by Northwoods Radio)
Feeding deer in Oneida County will be limited due to the discovery of chronic wasting disease late last year.
That deer was discovered on a game farm near Three Lakes in Oneida County in December. As a result, a ban on baiting or feeding will go into effect on Monday for not only Oneida, but also Vilas and Forest Counties.
State law requires that the DNR enact a ban on feeding and baiting of deer in counties or portions of counties within a 10-mile radius of the infected deer’s location. Both Forest and Vilas Counties fell within that distance.
Once the ban goes into effect, it will bring the overall total to 41 counties statewide.
The DNR says Individuals may still feed birds and small mammals, provided the feeding devices are within 50 yards of a human dwelling and at a sufficient height or design to prevent access by deer.
