With the hunting season looming, new restrictions on baiting and feeding deer have given hunters pause before buying a license for the upcoming season.

In a response to the increase of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in deer, Michigan’s Natural Resources Commission adjusted deer hunting rules in late January to ban baiting and feeding in the Lower Peninsula. While there was consideration to reverse the ban in July, state legislators have decided to move forward with the new rule before archery season begins at the start of next month.
