I posted a week or so ago about not seeing deer like I use to. This morning I carried a 9 years old own his first hunt and he took a big spike. He gut shot him but he didn't go to far. As I was field dressing him, I noticed he was full of whole corn. That confirms what I thought. Someone is feeding the deer. What do I need to do or do I just let it go.

Get in touch with your local officer by going through your regional office and let them know.

What SCN said, but the problem you have is you will have to figure out who it is.

My next door anti-Me-hunting-my-lease neighbor put in a nice food plot 75 yards on his side and did not mow about 4 acres of nice tall cover. It is out of sight of his house so he isn't watching wildlife and he does not hunt.

I know it is not illegal and that the deer won't totally abandon the other food sources. But you know, it is just a big disapointment for him to do this. Actually makes my killing a deer a lot easier but I like to hunt,not just kill.
