Tell him not to worry because hunters already killed Santa's deer.

Put them on the roof where Santa lands his sleigh and you'll be fine. Inaccessible to deer therefore not baiting.;)

If he leaves the carrots on a plate in the house and Santa hand feeds the deer, then this is not baiting. If Santa chooses to throw all the carrots he collects into one pile and the deer all eat from the same pile, then Santa is guilty of violating the bait ban.

Good point. Even if Santa hand feeds his deer he would be guilty of baiting. There might be no way around this one.:yikes:

Actually, the DNR is probably planning to arrest Santa when he violates the ban on tranporting captive cirvids. I'm waiting for the DNR press release claiming that Santa's rein deer are the cause of the rapid spread of CWD. It would make as much sense as a lot of the BS going on these days.:D

REINDEER like the 17 elk that escaped in genesee county are none native and open season onthem just like feral pigs as long as you have a hunting license
reindeer arn't on my list but an elk or pig would add to my list

In order to prevent the spread of disease he would have to use hand sanatizer each time he fed a new deer. Otherwise, still no better than eating from a bait pile.

Tell your son the baiting ban is for WHITE TAILED Deer and not REINDEER. And like others said, on the rooftop or inside of your house is not accessible to deer so all is good.

Send a 6 year old on the roof? I think i will let him leave the carrots for the deer. I will let Santa decied on what to do but, my guess is he will give them the carrots. If he doesnt the kids in Wisconsin are screwed. They have found plenty of deer there with CWD, wild ones at that!!:lol:
