According to the CT DEP website, Use of Attractants for Deer Hunting, Upper Paugussett happens to be in Zone in 11, however, it is public land and not private so the salt lick is verbotten (forbidden for those that don't remember SGT Schulz from Hogan's Heroes) according to CT DEP.
Use of Attractants for Deer Hunting. The following attractants may be used while hunting deer in Connecticut:Deer decoys during the early and late archery seasons only. All types of scent attractants (i.e., doe in heat, buck lure, urine, tarsal glands, food smells, smoke pole) that provide no substance for deer to consume. All types of sound attractants (i.e., doe calls, buck calls, antler rattling, electronic calls).Hunting over planted fields where normal agricultural planting, harvesting, or post-harvest manipulation is used.In addition to the attractants listed above, the following are allowed on PRIVATE LANDS ONLY while hunting deer in DEER MANAGEMENT ZONES 11 and 12. Minerals or chemicals that may be safely consumed by deer (i.e., salt licks).Artificial or natural foods placed, scattered, distributed or deposited (i.e., hay, grains, fruit, nuts and other foods that may be safely consumed by deer).
Well, this is obviously a direct violation and I have sent a note to the State DEP about it. Unfortunately, there isn't a whole lot they can do I suppose. By the looks of the brick it appears to be broken which means there is probably another one nearby.
