Ban On Baiting, Feeding Deer Maybe Removed 5-13-2011

A ban on baiting and feeding deer may soon end in most of Michigan.
The Natural Resources Commission tentatively agreed Thursday to let hunters spread up to 2 gallons of bait at each hunting site throughout the Lower Peninsula, except for the section of northeastern Michigan where bovine tuberculosis remains a problem.
The existing 2-gallon limit in the Upper Peninsula would continue.
The commission also would allow recreational feeding of deer statewide, except for the bovine TB zone.
Baiting and feeding have been outlawed in the Lower Peninsula since August 2008, when a deer with chronic wasting disease was found at a captive breeding farm in Kent County. No other cases have been reported.
The commission will vote on its proposed new policy June 9 in Lansing.
