Baiting and feeding regulations

No shaded counties will be removed from the baiting and feeding ban in 2024 through the nine-day gun deer season.




Baiting and feeding bans will renew with each new wild or captive positive CWD/TB result, and the map will be updated with any changes as soon as they are regulatory. Please check this page frequently for updates. Positives from wild deer and elk can be found on the CWD results webpage. More information on captive deer and elk positives can be found in the Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP) farm-raised deer positives list [PDF exit DNR]. Hunters should follow local ordinances that may prohibit baiting and feeding deer until they are notified of a change locally.
