No cases down here of blue tongue or cwd in southern missouri that I know of. My buddy hunts public woods in Van Buren and got pics of a elk (cow). She looked sick. Skin and bones.
I hunted again this weekend and seen the same 6 pt and passed him again. I had a good clean opportunity to take him. I also seen a few does but no shot. It suppose to get back into the 90's here this week. lol Not what I would call deer hunting weather.
