Here in KY you can bait for deer but you cannot for turkeys. That doesn't make sense to me. You can plant or feed turkeys but cannot hunt over it. Ronn, if you think you have too many deer on your land you can apply to the Game and fish dept for antlerless tags to remove deer from your property. That is only if it is determined that there is enough deer to cause damage to crops, habitat, etc.
WHAT HAPPENS IF YOU PUT A PILE OF CORN OUT FOR THE DEER AND TURKEYS COME TO THE PILE HOW WOULD YOU EXPLAIN IT TO A GAME AND FISH PERSON IF THEY CAME APON IT WITH TURKEYS EATING OUT OF THE PILE SENCE DEER AND TURKEYS EAT CORN?IT SURLY LOOKS LIKE TO THEM YOUR FEEDING THE TURKEYS BUT REALLY YOUR FEEDING THE DEER.THERE MUST BE SOME TYPE OF EXCEPTION TO THE RULE?
