CWD

Not looking good as far as next year's season. According to mdwfp, it is not looking good. Two more cases, one in isaquena, and one in Marshall County.

I think now we can just say we got cwd here. I hope the state gets check in stations per county and have decent turn arounds on results.

I think as of now all the WMA’s have a ckeck point set up and there are several others in the counties affected so far but it’s not looking good for the state so far.

The only solution now is to kill them all out and start over.

i'm not going to be too worried about it. i'll just make sure not to eat any sick looking deer ..

or maybe give it up altogether, and start squirrel hunting !

can you imagine how the deer population is going to explode if CWD causes a lot of hunters to quit ?

My thoughts on cwd it had been around for some time in other states and their herd seems to be fine I think cars kill more than cwd maybe we should ban cars or deer hunters they kill a lot too I think it has been around a while but they just started testing had they not tested it would not be an issue just my thoughts

I agree with Bigsteve, it's been around a long time , in other states and probably here. People hunt and eat deer killed in those states all the time. We don't normally eat meat from sick looking deer anyway.

I am holding to what I said a lot earlier. MDWFP does not want feeding and this CDW has just sprung up. It is a way for the "Good ole boys" to eliminate feeding and feeders. Let Nature take it's course.

They dont start showing clinical symptoms until about 14-16 months after they have been affected so there is really no way to tell unless you have them tested. I will be having mine tested before I eat them for sure. There will be a lot who quit and some who already have. I doubt it will make a difference as far as population since most areas are above carrying capacity now. Mother Nature will always take care of population problems.

I"m actually surprised at the number of hunters who said they are not going to hunt for meat until the human consumption part is figured out.

From what i've read, there have been "studies' , but now there is some talk about going back and reviewing a lot of people who died from a neurological disease that were also hunters ..

Hmmm, my wife contracted MS 10 years after we were married. And I dare say how much venison she consumed since we use(used) it for everything. No one knows the long term effects of consumption at this point it seems cause it is relatively new. All we have to do is look back in history at such things as cigarettes, lead paint, asbestors, etc etc etc, to see things they had no clue as to long term effects and thought to be safe. I have no problem eating them as long as they are tested and dont think I would deer hunt if not for the meat. I wonder what they will do about depredation permits where farmers leave carcasses laying; seems like a good way to spread it to me :pop:

yep,i've always bragged that the 95% of the meat we eat, was wild game... Deer & Elk being the bulk of it..

I would think that if CWD was widespread a few years ago, wouldn't we have seen a lot more deer carcasses in field , like EHD leaves behind ?

I would think without a necropsy being done it is hard to tell what they died from. Also EHD primarily happens to populations pretty rapidly(since it is carried by vectors) and during the hot summer months especially when it is dry. Whereas CWD takes a while and death can occur at anytime during the year. Obviously, they have had CWD in TN for a while with as many cases they have showing up. A state biologist friend told me that they got 3 more "hot" ones last week.

Well they had 11 more in TN (Fayette and Hardeman) test positive last week. Trump needs to build a wall on that state line.

It is close extremely close to Marshall. If it is not just as hot there now it is just a matter of time. It is odd that it is all around the state line and hasnt been found north of there.

Maybe, they are getting the results out pretty dang quick . Other than their management zone deer season is closed in TN so I guess time will tell. But so far nothing north of 64 even in the management zone where testing is mandatory. One thing is for sure if it isnt there now it soon will be but obviously this has been in that hot area a while.
