Saw it posted on Facebook and it's not good. I have aways said that all this supplemental feeding was going to put a hurt on own herd one day

Well it won't affect the way I hunt but some it will again when you go against nature it almost every time backfires the disease originated in pen raised deer and elk when the offspring of these animals are exposed free-range deer they are infected the disease can remain dormant for a long period of time and can be transmitted from dead animals the reason the feeders shouldn't be used it brings large numbers of deer together on a daily basis enhancing the chance of spreading the disease it has been around a long time I don't really think it will desimatte the herd as long as all hunters get on board and do the right thing I saw a case earlier in the year where a TV hunter was cited for transporting a deer from the Midwest into Mississippi some hunters hammered the wildlife officers for their actions the disease did not originate in miss it was imported here and sadly to say the laws Will get worse before it gets better

Bigsteve? What is the right thing?
I don't have to feed and am not a fan of feeding. I have done it, but not enough to count.

I don't feed but my hunting buddies do. I see our property in Claiborne Co. has been regulated.

Feeding isn't the problem importing deer or carcass from infected areas is no bone matter or whole carcases is the feeding only spreads the disease in infected animals they have set guidelines to follow every one should comply to prevent the spread of the disease

Probably been here for years already. I would be willing to bet it got here from importing live deer or just crossed an imaginary state line rather than importing a carcasses. If importing carcasses was the problem then every deer on my place would have died already since the prions can live in the soil for years and the ban on carcasses has just been in effect for a couple of years. Colorado has been living with CWD for decades and I still see no major effect from it.

It can be spread thru blood, saliva, feces, and urine . So feeding is a huge problem when you have an unnatural congregation/concentration of deer. The most common method of transfer according to Colorado is thru saliva. So with those givens the prevention of the spread of CWD seems pretty unrealistic. The ban on in bone carcass transfer sounds nice but in reality the spread is inevitable.

I totally agree and I know as a fact that live deer have been transferred into Mississippi and I too agree it has been here a while they haven't started testing only the last few years Arkansas has only been testing a few years I believe the more tests will find more cases and I also agree it will not be a big problem I think ehd takes far more deer than cwd

I’m sure it’s around it’s just none were testing for it. I do believe that bait piles are harmful in the big picture and yes I am guilty of it. Large concentrations of anything is never good.

More of a scare tacit because after all the research deer herds, elk ect are not being depleted by this disease. The mass killings have only proved that one out of a 1000 were positive for CWD..

I watched that video you posted yest on FB, where i think i saw the reference to the 1 out of 1000 . The first thing that grabbed my attention was that every one of those guys providing input, had a monetary stake in high-fence operations. Of course they are going to say CWD is not a result of pens.

i believe the truth/solutions are somewhere in the middle of the two sides.

Is the disease transferred to humans, if we eat the deer?

I had a couple of my workers say you can't eat the venison of an infected deer.
To the best of my knowledge the meat is fine and safe for consumption.

There is no proof that it jumps to humans. I have not had any of the elk I've killed tested, and have eaten every bit of them.

However, if I KNEW a deer was sick or had CWD, there is no way in the world that I would eat it. That's just not worth the risk.

In years gone by I have killed deer that were wounded earlier in the season. I did not eat them but I had a neighbor that wanted them and she is still alive.

Any hunter worth his or her salt. Should know the difference between a healthy animal and one that looks sick. My son is driving me crazy over the deer he killed this season in Yazoo County. When I asked him if he got sick from the venison burgers and stew, I made and he readily consumed. His answer was hell know. But mine tasted nothing like yours. That's why I was concerned. My answer was if you would shut up and watch, you might learn something. Lol

I’m sure we have eaten a not perfectly healthy deer by not knowing. We are still here to talk about it. I’ve eaten deer from Midwest from cwd zones and I’m still fat so it’s not effecting me. If you have ate elk, well your chances are much higher as they have been known to have cwd way before deer and are big heard animals.
