is it a 'death sentence' to give him corn feed (corn mixed with bird seed and other feed stuff) as I am trying to wean him?



He eats other things but this resent 'advise' has me worried. and if it is really bad is there something I should do to correct the bad problem I have created in his gut.... do u stop abruptly....



Help?

Give him nothing...He is a wild deer now and will have to fend for himself. By you having contact with him may give the death sentence. You have do your part and your best. Time to let him go be a deer!

What Mike was trying to get across to you is you have to break his friendship with humans as if he keeps that attutude he will go to someone when hunting is on and get shot. He has to realize people are bad for him in the wild. The corn and bird feed will not hurt him just his friendship with people will.
