Baiting and feeding regulations

Counties with baiting and feeding bans.

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