we just got an article up on blue tongue in the hunting tips section. blue toingue is mainly a disease in the south. cwd stands for chronic waste disease and is a progressive illness that is always fatal. it can also spread from 1 deer to another whereas blue tongue cannot. cwd is primarly been found in the northern states

CWD is in the northern and some western states and Canada too, but it is not fatal too humans. Basically if you shoot and eat it, nothing will happen.
