DNR asks hunters to not bait deer

ST. PAUL, MN (FOX 47) -- DNR officials have a favor to ask of hunters: please don't bait deer.

Officials say there are some new health concerns that make it important to reduce the risks of spreading disease in the whitetail herd.

Tuberculosis has been identified in the Minnesota deer herd and chronic wasting disease was recently discovered in Michigan deer.

Critics say baiting and feeding cause unnatural concentrations of deer and increase the risk of disease infection and spread.
