CNB Hunting/Fishing NJ: State Bans Sale and Use of Natural Deer Hunting Lures

Effective May 10, 2021, a change to NJ hunting regulations will ban the possession, sale, and use of all natural, deer-derived hunting lures (urine and glandular secretions) to help safeguard the health of the state’s deer herd from the threat of Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD).

These scents and lures are derived from captive deer where the risk of CWD is greatest.

Synthetic lures and lures not made... Read more →

The findings were published online by The Journal of Child Psychology and Psychiatry.
