The adopted change re- moves the "line of sight" prohibition from the rule, allowing hunters to place approved feeders in loca- tions where they can be seen by the hunters. Un- changed in the rule is the requirement that hunters must be at least 100 yards from the feeder. The adopted rule has been filed with the Secretary of State's Office and will be- come effective November 1, 2015. Above ground covered feeders or stationary spin cast feeders must be used to feed wildlife.
