BOONE AND CROCKETT CLUB POSITION STATEMENT CHRONIC WASTING DISEASE AND THE TRANSPORTATION OF LIVE CERVIDS

Effective Date: December 7, 2018 Situational Overview

The Boone and Crockett Club, the nation's oldest hunter-conservationist organization, previously released a position statement regarding its concerns with Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). The Club maintains that CWD poses a significant wildlife health problem that will prevent many populations of wild deer, elk and other cervids from thriving in the long-term. One particular aspect of the disease merits a further statement by the Club, which is how to address human-assisted transportation of live cervids that is now regarded as the greatest risk for CWD introduction.

Position

The Boone and Crockett Club supports the conclusions and recommendations of the Association of Fish and Wildlife Agencies in Resolution #2018-02-07 and an associated document outlining Best Management Practices for Prevention, Surveillance, and Management of Chronic Wasting Disease (BMP). The Club joins AFWA in concluding the most effective way to prevent CWD introduction and establishment is to prohibit all human-assisted live cervid movements.

The Boone and Crockett Club encourages states to adopt AFWA's Resolution in a manner that is appropriate for their own jurisdictions, and to support the Fish and Wildlife Health Committee in developing further science-based recommendations regarding the implementation of the practices described in the BMP document.

I wish to kindly submit my comments on the Docket No. APHIS-2018-0011 Chronic Wasting Disease Herd Certification Program Standards please. i have submitted online and sent a hard copy to Dr. Nichols via email. i know that my concern may not be the same concern as others, but ramifications from cwd tse prion can be long lasting, and science is still emerging. however, the science today warrants immediate and further actions be taken. my comments, with reference materials, are as follows, and will be formatted in such a way, i will address issues by numbers 1-10, and under each one of my comments by each number, i will reference my comments with science to back up what i am stating/asking...

thank you kindly, terry

1. I believe that immediately, there should be a 'DECLARATION OF EXTRAORDINARY EMERGENCY FOR FOREIGN ANIMAL DISEASE OF THE United States of America USA' due to Chronic Wasting Disease CWD Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy TSE Prion disease. All Intercontinental, International, Interstate movements of cervid should be banned immediately from the USA, and documented CWD TSE Prion Countries.

It very clearly says that human-assisted transportation of live cervids is the greatest risk for CWD introduction. henry has been trying to tell you all the roads are bad, I just didn't know they were THAT bad. :wave1:
