DNR says it continues to consider deer feeding and baiting illegal
Earlier this month a Wisconsin court of appeals ruled that baiting and feeding deer is allowable even in chronic wasting disease zones so long as the intention is not to hunt, and, what's more, the burden of proving intent falls on the state.

But that decision by appeals court judge Thomas Hruz, which upheld a circuit court ruling that dismissed a baiting-and-feeding citation, didn't impress the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources. The agency says baiting and feeding deer in CWD-affected counties is still illegal and it will continue to enforce the code. (subscriber access)
