Hunting, Angling and Trapping Regulations

ORS 498.018
Commercial cervid attractants


As used in this section:


“Chronic wasting disease” means a type of spongiform encephalopathy that is transmissible among cervids and typified by chronic and fatal weight loss.


“Commercial cervid attractant” means a marketed product that contains or is derived from cervid urine and is designed for use in luring, attracting or enticing a cervid.


The Legislative Assembly finds and declares that:


Commercial cervid attractants sometimes contain the source of chronic wasting disease;


There is no reliable test for determining the presence or absence of chronic wasting disease in commercial cervid attractants; and


Banning the possession and use of commercial cervid attractants will reduce the threat to the cervid population of this state from chronic wasting disease.


A person may not possess or use commercial cervid attractants. [2019 c.396 §2]
Note: 498.018 (Commercial cervid attractants) was added to and made a part of the wildlife laws by legislative action but was not added to ORS chapter 498 or any series therein. See Preface to Oregon Revised Statutes for further explanation.
