Is that due to all the hunters out west having ill effects from eating CWD venison over the past 35+ years?

Close all the deer farms, that is a start, but once CWD gets in the wild herd, it is probably too late. Kill as many deer in infected areas, and do everything else you can, but the horse is out of the barn. Deer farms should have been shutdown or better managed many years back. Good advice though. This CWD will ruin deer hunting in PA unless a way to stop it, can be found. People should fear this disease.

Going to war without France is like going hunting without an accordion.

Also just came across a survey the Daily Item is doing if anyone would like to participate and submit responses regarding this matter. The link is below, hopefully it works.

Dead center part of state. 45 min to Harrisburg one way and 45 min to state college the other.

Just doesn't make sense to eat the meat. That would be like eating a cow from a farm that had Mad cow disease! Would you eat the meat from the farm? Not happening here. Would not serve that meat to my friends or family. No cases have been detected of CWD being transformed to humans but more studies are being done to show that there is a good possibility it can. Look on page 57 of the hunting digest and it will tell you that! If you want to eat the meat go for it!

Hysteria in my opinion....just the like the mad cow thing back in the day. If you stay away from consuming brains and spinal tissue, it's not anything to be worried about. With all the hype surrounding CWD, you can be darn sure if there was any kind of link between eating CWD venison and CJD in humans, the media would be all over it. Yet, it has been out west for 35+ years and not a peep about a human having ill effects from venison.

But many cases of Alzheimers disease and dementia since then, I'd wager.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.
