With deer season fast approaching, bow hunters in particular should be wary of the lures they use to attract deer. Some popular deer urine lures could contain Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), an always fatal, debilitating disease similar to mad cow disease. CWD is a neurodegenerative disease found in most deer species including moose, elk, mule deer, and white-tailed deer. Deer can spread the disease among themselves before symptoms develop, and symptoms may not develop for up to two years.
