What do all you guys think about Chronic Wasting Disease? How big of deal is it where you live? Are you deer hunters going to eat the meat, in states/areas where deer have been found to have CWD? I really don't know what to think about it. Nothing really has been proven that it can "spread/infect" humans. Your thoughts on the subject......:confused:

Have read a few articles on this in outdoor mags. trying to keep an eye on where the problems are. You guys got it bad there. Hope it gets undercontrol. Just as a caution, I probably wouldn't eat venison from a possible contaminated animal.

So far no reported cases in New York State, but as a precaution the DEC has banned the feeding of deer in the state. They think that there might be a link between the disease and the deer eating spoiled feed.

There have been a few cases here in WI, and hunter registration has been down a lot. It is illegal to bait deer here now too. I have heard there are going to be field kits marketed to test deer, that you can sample the deer, and then send it in or something....
