CWD ?

We have the DMA areas now and they are or seem to be ,getting bigger?
The PGC is putting out permits to shoot the does,to thin it or stop it? [ It will never stop.]
How is this to work if quite a bit of the area you can't get on to to hunt.I mean posted areas, like farms and private forest.If there are a vast amount of sick ones,they will just keep spreading it. So whats the use?
Call ma conspiracy theory nut,but i feel it is just just so much of a ploy to,A, kill a lot more deer off and B, to get more money in?
If it is moving at the rate that the DMA areas are growing,we won't have any un sick deer to hunt?
I hunted in 4-D,it got bigger in that section,{DMA-2},and has moved into 2-E ! But, the border line is right on the edge of Prince Gallitzin State Park. The park has 100 DMAP permits it issues! I feel if it were included in DMA-2,no one would want them? The park has lots of deer.What would the campers and folks that use the park think if they heard that the deer in the park my have a disease? They would not want their kids in there !
Last year,where we hunt was not included in it,now,our area is. With out looking at the map,i sent for doe tag for my old spot.
Well,to much baloney to go thru if you harvest a deer,in there,so,for another thing,i don't want to take home any meat that may have CWD or have blood and guts all over me when i clean it.
As with all government studies,i don't believe them, it won't hurt you !!!!You won't know till its too late.
20 years or so ago,when we supposedly,had too many deer roaming the state,we had no disease killing them,so they had us shoot them off !
Any how,i won't be hunting in there,DMA-2,as with a bunch of other folks,so the herd will just grow and the sickness will spread?

Re: CWD ?

Many of us have said that the whole state will be a DMA in time. There are folks within the PGC that want that to be the case already.

There is a fine line between sensible precautions and education and spreading fear and urging regulations that do more harm than good.

I support all hunters, regardless of weapon or technique!

Re: CWD ?

the do not know if or when CWD will become transmittable to humans.

the cattle disease that is similar to CWD could be transferable to humans:

http://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-condi...on/con-20028005

CJD captured public attention in the 1990s when some people in the United Kingdom developed a form of the disease — variant CJD (vCJD) — after eating meat from diseased cattle. However, "classic" Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease hasn't been linked to contaminated beef.


i would not eat the meat from any deer in a CWD area. for thos that say its OK to eat, i would give it to them.

i certainly would not feed it to my family and hope for the best.

Re: CWD ?

I am with bohunr,on the eating of these. I will not even hunt,now,in an area that they mark as a DMA,so i won't have any to give away.
I,in no way,want my hands inside of one of them.

Yup, as time goes on and the CWD Zone gets larger more deer hunters will think like this, affecting the PGC ability to control the deer numbers.
License sales will drop and the fallout from there is unstoppable. It's not a pretty picture.

I've spent most of my money on Waterfowling, Women and Whiskey.
The rest of my money I just wasted.

Yep. Part of the problem with the end of the world strategy that our game agency has taken. There should be more emphasis on sensible education and less emphasis on the impending apocalypse that never panned out anywhere else.

One thing for sure, hunters are creeping out about it which will not help the situation for the continued need to harvest deer in the CWD zones.

Re: CWD ?

All of this is bad enough,but,they want to charge you $6.90,to go shoot sick deer ?
As i have said earlier, if i would have seen the DMA-2 map had expanded,i would have never,never,sent for WM 4-D antlerless tags !!!!!!
4-D,this year has 34,000 tags,plus they added on 1,000 over last years total,and also,form what i have seen,tacked on 14,500 DMA-2 tags .
