Banning deer scent lures

Would you have a problem with the PGC banning the use fo urine based scent lures to minimize the spread of CWD?

Nope, not at all!

--So there is no confusion, I mean yes I would support the ban.

Ban away if it's an effective way of limiting the spread.

Re: Banning deer scent lures

Let's say every hunter in the state uses 6oz of the stuff each season. Truthfully PA hunters dont all use the stuff anyway, so the actual amount would be considerably less. Then consider that the state's approx one million deer each pee atleast that amount several times each day, 365 days a year. The collective amount we hunters use amounts toad drop in the bucket. It's just another fear tactic knee jerk reaction and nothing about it's use has been documented to contribute to the spread of the disease. Everyone involved needs to stick to the facts. Cwd has been around for decades. Even the hardest hit regions still have huntable deer and elk populations. I live smack in the middle of the cwd zone from last fall. The one in which thousands of deer tested failed to produce one single positive. I killed a buck less than one mile from one of the old suspect deer pens. And after all the hoopla lo and behold the disease turned up a hundred miles away in the wild herd. We will not contain it or prevent it. But we can learn to live with it and stop treating it like the apocalypse. Show me proof that a bottle of Tinks spreads the disease and I'll buy you a drink. Till then, no, I will not support it. I think it's ridiculous.

I'm not stating that there is a definitive link, I'm not sure that there is. But I do know that if one bottle was found to have one CWD causing prion, I'd support a total ban...no matter how little it is compared to how much deer urinate naturally.

Yep. All CWD plans have been pretty much ineffective. What hunters do by placing bait or by using urine is a gnat in the state of Alaska.

I oppose the banning of feeding deer or using urine based scents until I see any hard connection to those activities contributing to the spread of CWD.

What has happened by some of these knee jerk reactions is harm to our sport and industry.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: Banning deer scent lures

Banning feeders would be a much better start IMO....feeders are known disease spreaders....


I've had numerous deer come in to my useless pee...haven't had one eat it or actually put its nose in it...

There are no more American Chestnuts now because of one tree that was donatated to New York. From that one tree it spread across the whole nation. Unless you know for sure that it won't spread it why take the chance?

You canít get them if you ainít in the woods!!
