    Deer today, gone tomorrow....

    There is a small town north of us here in Utah, called Paragonah, population 488 in 2010. They have even more deer hanging out there than we do where I live. While patrolling this morning for our sheriff's office, we drove by the two houses that always have deer in their yards (I am pretty sure they feed them, which is of course, illegal). I thought this was pretty amusing. There are a couple more deer beyond the fence.

    Heck, given how docile that deer is you would be in compliance with that sign if you harvested that deer.

    Apparently animals are better at identifying gun free zones than criminals.

    I hope you see them again, on a more competitive field!

    Yep, in some places feeding deer is a capital crime:

    I suppose so, but around here, and in Texas, too, deer feeders are about as common as trees!
    We have one in the back yard just to draw them in to watch - not to hunt.

    Yes, I know it's legal in Texas.

    you may be breaking the law by feeding wild animals. Even those who have been maimed as a result of illegally feeding wild animals have been criminally charged. Case in point: A Florida man who lost his hand to an alligator while feeding it in 2012 was also charged with a misdemeanor for illegally feeding the predator.

    Most states have laws prohibiting the feeding of wild animals, especially on public land. Federal law also prohibits feeding wildlife in federal parks.

    We had a hard time breaking my father-in-law of that! He had a habit of having a few beers and going out to feed table scraps to the gators in the bayou behind his house. We figured that sooner or later he was going to end up with the nickname, "Lefty"!

    I think what finally cured him of it was one day when he slipped on the bank, and fell halfway into the water while the gators were gathered around for their dinner. Seems he quit feeding them right after that!

    Typically considered “baiting” and prohibited. Illegal for deer and moose in Maine. Bears in Maine are an exception to that prohibition.

    Feeders become a disease vector, so many states frown on feeding. Additionally, deer feed can be low quality and comparable to giving human toddlers a diet of twinkies.
