I’m in the middle of DMA 3....it’s only a matter of time...thank you deer farmers and Dept of Ag...makes me sick...daughter came through the house yesterday after she stepped in deer ----...first thought was......great....I have prions all through my kitchen... Transportation of live deer is why we are in this position right now...should have stopped 20 years ago....no deer should of been allowed to enter the state... Used to love to shoot a couple doe for my family to enjoy...I loved processing and making all kinds of jerky and sausage......now not so sure...

Yep, know the feeling. My test so far came back “Not Detected” but I now field dress and handle my deer like it’s a HAZMAT operation. I am really hoping a field test kit will be available soon.

We hunt directly above the hotbed of CWD. Just on ridge top from where it all began in 2C. Past 2 years and a few dozen tests, thus far all 'not detected'

I've always wondered at what point they started taking wild samples to test for CWD. I am very skeptical of the bar graph that shows over 3,000 sampled wild deer every year since 2004. Who was paying for those tests? Where were they getting their samples? I'd like to see some more information backing up those numbers.

The last graph tells the story.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.
