So to break it down:

-- feeding of game by spincast, broadcast, or any container feeders
-- feed must be 15% or more protein
-- must have land owner permission on private property
-- must be within 200 yds of food plot 1 acre or bigger (exemption for lessee who can not clear land)
-- Must be 500 ft from roadway
-- You must hunt at least 100 yards from feeder and it can't be within view
-- each feeder must have a $20 permit plus pay $5 issuance fee.
-- Buck must have 3 point 1" or longer on one side
-- Minimum fine if in violation is $300 and maximum fine is $500
-- Initially, a permit may be purchased August 1, following the effective date of this act, through October 15, following the effective date of this act. Thereafter, a permit may be purchased in each subsequent year from February 1st through March 15th.

Did I miss anything?

looks complicated.....

Here we are not allowed to feed or supplement deer from Sept 1 through Jan 31.  We cannot hunt over permanent mineral or salt licks for cattle.  Not real complicated for the most part.  NOW, seeing as PETA is based in Virginia I see them every year try to even get the planting of food plot for wildlife made illegal....

LOL....to me....it seems like they added all the "extras" to hide the main thing in the whole "law"....to generate some money thru that permit that is required....Like I said about something on another thread....all the "frills" could partly be there to be conviently trimmed off as an act of "compromise" but to still allow the fee for the baiting in the end. Will be interesting to see how it ends up. Keep us informed brother!

That stinks...
I guess I could put up a black plastic curtain to hide the feeder...
Better yet I just not put out any feeders like I have done for a number of years.
I just might give Dan Moultrie a call... Dan Moultrie former owner of Moultrie feeders is on on the CAB for Alabama...
Dan does work for Academy Sports (conflict) I was wondering why academy started carrying Protein feed pellets...
How is this going to affect our May 1 to mid September supplemental feeding program? Do we still have to register those feeders?

The permit is only needed if you are using the feeder during hunting season.

My understanding is this would be any game animal, which would include deer and turkey. I am not sure, but I think this may not apply to hogs.

No doubt.  Almost makes my head hurt trying to decipher that.  ;D

You'd have to be serious about wanting to bait with that law.

I have a feeling this law was written up very specifically for a reason. I am sure there is some agenda behind all of these silly rules. I hope the whole bill dies, but I have a feeling it won't.
