LANSING, Mich. - Michigan officials have approved a series of deer hunting regulations intended to slow the spread of chron ic wasting disease.

Among them is an immediate ban on baiting and feeding deer in the 16-county area of southern and central Michigan identified as the CWD Management Zone.

A ban on baiting and feeding throughout the Lower Peninsula takes effect Jan. 31, 2019, with an exception for hunters with disabilities who meet specific requirements. Also imposed immediately was a statewide ban on natural deer urine-based lures and attractants not approved by the Archery Trade Association.

Details of other new rules are available online.

Chronic wasting disease is a fatal brain and nervous system illness found in deer, elk and moose. It's been detected in 60 free-ranging deer in Michigan since May 2015.
