Helpful tip for hunters from LDWF

From a Facebook post by the Louisiana Dept. of Wildlife and Fisheries


This tip is for all you hunters out there: We advise anyone using corn to feed deer and turkeys that care should be taken to avoid tainted corn, especially corn with high aflatoxin levels. The best way to avoid tainted corn is to purchase packaged corn that has been tested and labeled aflatoxin free. Consumption of aflatoxin by animals may cause liver disease, unthriftiness, abortion, poor reproduction, poor immune function and death.
