CWD Rant

From a Wisconsin land manager. Interesting. You may want to skip the first part about regulations.

Good video.


CWD is here to stay, and as we've seen in states that have been dealing with it for decades, is not the end of the deer herd. Going forward, it may be more important to manage hunters perceptions and reactions to the disease than to try to manage the disease itself. The worst thing that could happen would be the inability to be able to continue sound herd management due to hunter fear and drop out.

IMO, the two most important things that could be done is the development of an inexpensive field testing kit that can detect CWD, along with a convenient method of disposal for positive carcasses.

I think in 10 yrs from now CWD will just be a part of hunting that we have to live with just like they do out west. A better outcome would be finding a cure within 10 yrs.

For me its now, not 10 years from now a part of hunting. Of course I have been in the original DMA-2 since the start. I do feel the entire state will be in a few years lets hope im wrong. I cant see a cure, its been around too long with a lot of smart people behind the scenes working at it. I just got 3 post cards back from the ones I had tested stating nothing found. The PGC is really doing the best they can with it. Awareness is a big thing and us sportsman doing our part is the second thing. At this time in the DMA's year round no feeding is has to help. The dumpsters now in every DMA to place your parts is a good thing. I have been utilizing all of this since the start. Back years ago a lot of us including myself was guilty of just pitching these parts. I did so on my own property for years but no more. Then the free testing is available for us and there data. We all need to take that extra step to do what is expected.

Lets all hope it stays where it is and the rest of the state don't have to encounter it.

That is for this year but at some point since 2012 a deer had to test positive for the area to become a DMA.
