That sucks man. Here in Missouri they are severely cracking down on it. There are only a couple cases of it, but they are really trying to nip it now so that this doesn't hurt our deer herd. They say, CWD is most common in bucks, so in my area of hunting they have taken the antler-point restriction (at least 4 points on one side) off for this season and now we can kill any bucks of any age. I'm hoping this will clear it up in an effort to control and get rid of this CWD.

On another note, we have had a terrible time with blue tongue here in MO this year b/c o the drought. Interestingly though, the dept. of conservation isn't too conserned about that.......?

Lower Michigan is being hit hard from some kind of midge fly that causes the deer to bleed to death. I don't have the facts as I've just learned of it. Their talking thousands of deer to die from it.

That's kinda what these deer around here have done HM. We've lost over 3,000 deer to this fly-bite thing. I was assuming it was the same as blue tongue??? maybe not. How is blue tongue contracted then? anyone know?
