A Defining Conservation Issue for All Deer Hunters

The Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service of USDA has opened a comment period on new rulemaking for the captive cervid industry, specifically the Herd Certification Program. These become the national guidelines and minimum regulations all states must abide by in terms of the movement of captives.

The TRCP issued the following release last week, and we are hoping many other conservation organizations and individuals will follow suit and submit comments, or use the TRCP online form to provide comments.

Please note: The comment period ends on April 30th.

The official notice can be found here along with the electronic address and postal address if you'd like to submit your own comments.

It is imperative that folks weigh in. The last time a comment period was open, USDA didn’t hear from many hunters and their attitude was that, “we must be doing something right!”

Thanks for your help.

From TRCP:

As Chronic Wasting Disease spreads among deer herds in states all across the country, it creates uncertainty for hunters and drives up costs for wildlife agencies faced with the prospect of controlling the epidemic. Affected states are doing what they can, but if the USDA doesn’t act soon, the very future of hunting and wildlife conservation could be at stake. Here’s why decision makers need to hear from deer hunters before it's too late.

I just came across this posting of the proposed USDA program for combating CWD. It is very encouraging to see they are supporting genetic research into resistance to CWD in deer and elk with specific gene types. This research may lead to a lasting method of controlling CWD and should be encouraged by all of us.
