I'm afraid this is a disease that is out of control.Just look at its history.It has spread from West to East.The deer farmers have spread it by trading deer that appeared healthy,but it develops slowly and is incurable.I even saw a blog by a member of a deer farming association that said when the wild herds are reduced,hunters will patronize pay to hunt operations more frequently.

Yikes, I used to live and hunt in that county.

No CWD in Sitka Blacktails in Alaska!

Just watched a program on how Wisconsin 10 years ago decided to erradicate large sq miles of every deer. That proved not to be the best measure. Now it seems that modern thoughts are to just let it take it's natural course. High density deer areas are the most prone. I'll be following PA's DNR web site to see what they are doing or not doing.
