Deer feeding and baiting still an issue
Feeding and baiting of deer has been banned in Oneida, Vilas and Forest counties after a deer testing positive for Chronic Wasting Disease was killed at a game farm in Three Lakes. With that positive finding, any county within 10 miles of that farm was subject to the ban. The ban went into effect on Jan. 11 of this year, but still some people are not following the rules of the ban. There is no ban on the sale of bait or feed. However, placing feed or bait out for deer is illegal in our tri-county area. (subscriber access)
