Feeding Deer is Illegal

Not only is it illegal, but feeding deer can render them dependent upon artificial food sources, attract mountain lions, result in deer-caused damage on neighboring properties, increase deer/car collisions, and you could be held legally liable for any problems or damage caused by the deer on neighboring property.

A person may not provide supplemental feed attractants to game animals by purposely or knowingly providing supplemental feed attractants in a manner that results in an artificial concentration of game animals that may potentially contribute to the transmission of disease or that constitutes a threat to public safety.
