Prohibit use of natural cervid-based urine [CWD]


Warning message

Submissions for this form are closed.

Background statement: The prions that cause Chronic Wasting Disease may be excreted in the urine of infected animals and may result in transmitting the disease to other cervids (deer, elk, moose). 

To reduce the possibility of introducing or spreading prions that cause CWD through the use of scents or lures, the Department is proposing to ban the use of natural cervid urine products. Synthetic substitutes for urine products may be still be used. There is benefit to applying the rule for the 2018 hunting season as a component of implementing Idaho’s Chronic Wasting Disease strategy to the reduce risk of CWD entering the state.
