The "little old lady" at the top of the hill in my neighborhood has been feeding the deer all year. It's to the point where they literally wait in her yard for her to feed them, and then they eat out of her hand (really). I know this is a bad practice, but is it illegal? If so, is it egregious enough to report to TWRA? She's far enough from where I hunt to not violate the hunting over feed law, but she has repatterned a lot of the deer traffic away from the woods and into her yard.

It is not illegal to feed deer.

ya I have one next door to me too this really sucks because it prevents me from hunting on my own land I wish twra would do something about this either outlaw baiting or legalize it I hear from so many people my neighbor puts out corn on the border of his property so that its illegal to hunt within 250 yards of it
this is a problem that needs to be dealt with

You may want to check eith your local officer on this. Many are like me and take a pretty dim view of spite baiting. If I honestly thought someone was trying to stop someone from hunting, I don't know that I would worry about the 250 yds......

I have someone who does the same, his property is labeled as a sanctuary so no hunting at all. I see deer in his front yard all the time, and its usually 5 or more just outside his front door.
My deer seem to have slowed down on my property about middle of the year and almost diapered, dont see near as many.
But my wonderful wife got me a feeder for Christmas so maybe I can bring them back next year with that and a few other things to put out during the summer and early fall.
