(Bismarck, ND) -- North Dakota Game and Fish is banning deer baiting in select units.

The agency is implementing new regulations aimed at keeping the deer population healthy and thriving.

Officials say banning baiting will reduce opportunities for deer to gather, potentially lowering the spread of chronic wasting disease.

Deer gun season ended last week, leaving hunters looking forward to the next season.
