Up to 100 deer at a time may visit the pantry for food
Viewers can watch up to 100 deer at a time gather to feed when they check out the live video footage of Maine's Brownville Food Pantry For Deer. The pantry provides up to 600 pounds per day of native oats to help sustain the wild white-tailed deer population through rough winters.

The deer are fed daily around 8 to 9 a.m EST beginning December 16 through the beginning of April. Some of the deer have been visiting the food pantry for more than 10 years. Wild turkeys can also be seen eating the native oats alongside the deer.
Copy below the YouTube live video feed addresses concerns about the spread of disease, saying, "There is no Chronic Wasting Disease, or CWD, in wild deer in Maine. Please dont complain about it in chat. These deer are all very healthy and there has never been any type of disease spread among these deer. This "Yarding" of deer happens in Maine every winter, even if they were not being fed. You may see deer that are lame. Experts tell us that leaving them alone is the best thing we can do for them. Thank you for watching!"
