Mineral Sites Added to Supplemental Feeding Ban
2/21/2018 1:26:12 PM

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks has amended the supplemental feeding ban in the six counties within the Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) management zone.  It is now unlawful to establish new mineral sites, mineral blocks, salt blocks, or licks. It is also unlawful to add supplements to existing mineral sites.

The intent of the supplemental feeding ban is to minimize the concentration of white-tailed deer in small, centralized locations to reduce the potential for spreading CWD.

The CWD management zone includes the following counties: Claiborne, Hinds, Issaquena, Sharkey, Warren, and Yazoo.
