There is some big concerns about the feeding of wildlife. Anything from Birds to Deer to you name it. Many say that it is unnatural and if you stop feeding, the wildlife suffers from the lack of 'Needing' to look for food.
Many concerns are about disease. This one is more of a large game issue. The big issue on this one is that by feeding large amounts of food to deer and bear, always in the same spot, and animal with a disease will transmit it much more quickly in the close quarters of a feeding area.
First...birds. Most birds will migrate south when the weather gets cold or food becomes scarce. Hummingbirds being the biggest concern. Be sure to pull your feeders at the right time so the birds will continue their trek south when food is still available.
Animals...Other than them becoming Pests, let's look at a couple of things. Bears are not 'Teddy Bears". They can and will do alot of damage all times of the year. DO NOT encourage a Bear. Deer...Do transmit several disease among themselves. So if you are going to feed the, (WHERE LEGAL), spread out the area where you do the feeding. This will help limit the exposure of any disease.
The othething that feeding does is makes an area able to support more wildlife. So if you start to feed...DON'T STOP! The wildlife become dependent on your support and stopping could mean a Death sentence in the colder climates.
The last concern is Hunters. Many feel that hunting over food that has been supplied is unethical and not sportsman like. Most State Game Agencies agree. This is Illegal in a majority of states.
So, when feeding the wildlife...take these concerns to heart.
NOW! For my friends that hunt or know people who hunt...a little humor!
My Dad gave me this. Leave it to him to find a twist to things. Now you know where I get it from!!!!
