As of today, it is no longer legal to feed deer in the state of Virginia. The Virginia Department of Game and Inland Fisheries released the statement, adding annual prohibition runs through the first Saturday in January. Make sure all feed has been removed, and any area where deer feed has been distributed is considered a “baited” area and cannot be hunted for 10 days following the complete removal of the food. These restrictions do not apply to agricultural plantings (including wildlife food plots) or food distributed to livestock.
