Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife


Can I apply deer/elk urine, beaver musk, skunk urine, fish oil, or any other type of wildlife/fish scent on my clothing while bear hunting?

  • All such attractants are considered baiting and can’t be used while bear hunting.
  • “Bait” means a substance placed, exposed, deposited, distributed, scattered, or otherwise used for the purpose of attracting black bears to an area where one or more persons hunt or intend to hunt them.
  • It is illegal to hunt black bear with the use of bait in Washington.
