Before baiting deer became popular it was customary for farmers to dump cull carrots, beets, apples,potatoes, etc, in the woods for deer to eat. A normal agricultural practice. Therefore it apparently is legal to harvest deer that come to feed on this material if it is legal to harvest deer coming to "food plots" or to feed in the fields. Farmers feed the deer, thats why most of our deer are found in agricultural areas. Or does this sound too much like "common sense" ??
