    At least 95% accurate. How accurate have the tests shown Bastians to be? Lol

    Yours dont seem accurate enough to be approved.

    So theres a chance, at least 5% that MDC imported CWD positive elk....

    And they quarantined all those animals for extended periods of time on both ends of their journey before using them. They tranqualized them and cut a piece of their tonsil out and then waited for a month for test results.

    So, deer farmers should be able to do the same thing.

    Bastians test is 0% accurate. Thats because it's just a claim

    How does someone that has no experience with his test make such a claim?? Was it posted on a highway billboard somewhere?

    No. They called it a claim. And until tested and substantiated that's all it is.

    I think if there was a live test the best measure would be night time operations with multiple people and if a positive is found you concentrate all efforts in that area.Deer who have been darted and checked already would need a chip or some kind of identification for these crews to identify them.Then after a while start checking ones who have been checked again.I think the best time would be late season,if a positive is found then every square mile within a certain area would need controlled food sources and all other food must be destroyed "cost reimbursed through the state",then deer should congregate in great numbers and can be ran through,eradicated,and retested all winter to see if they contract the disease.Obviously this is a pipe dream but the only measure I think that would work has to involve large quantities of deer and weeding out sick ones An retesting healthy ones till all signs of sickness are gone.As for now I guess all we can do is sit back and wait and hope for a scientific break through we're deer can be vaccinated for the disease much like puppies are vaccinated

    Just like the global warming cabal. Discredit all findings contrary to their agenda. What have these researchers given us or got closer to solving how to treat cwd. Their solution is to kill the healthy.

    Interesting ......It has been found in the free-ranging herds in 22 states and among captive cervids in 16 states.
