    In KANSAS where they have determined that cwd spreads at a rate of 7 miles a year we see a jump of 11 to 12 miles from last years hot zone east of New Boston.Irradiation by a different name only leads to a more transient population which spreads cwd further then doing nothing .Grundy and LIVINGSTON COUNTIES CAN NOW BE WELCOMED TO THE GROWING LIST OF watch counties . With the latest out break in Linn county setting on the Sullivan county line. Sullivan will probably get the honer and everything that goes with it of being a county where cwd has been found by the end of seal season.After the team gets the deer using there truck loads of corn they will put the silencers and night vision scopes on there rifles and destroy deer and deer hunting one sponge at a time.One should see things like this happen only when watching a old Twilight Zone re run. The bait IS ALREADY OUT seal season does not kick off till Jan. the 16th.

    IT might take there trappers till the end of this year to remove all of the feral hogs without help from the orange army. They would then need something to do. i DON,T KNOW WHY CATCHING EVERY DEER IN THE STATE WOULD BE DAUNTING FOR THEM.

    Kansas hasn't tested enough deer in the history of their cwd monitoring program to determine anything. They don't have the money.

    What is catching deer going to do??? What does CWD have to do with the feral hog dilemma?

    If Missouri would do statewide testing I'm sure they would find more cases in the counties that aren't in the cwd management zones.

    They have been doing statewide testing for better than 15 years I believe.

    That might be, I was talking about the mandatory testing the are doing the first weekend of rifle season in the cwd management zones.

    That could be coming. I'm not sure if they are staffed appropriately to accomplish that... could be, not sure.

    I believe they said it takes 750 personnel do do the counties they did this year for mandatory testing. It would take 3000 people to do it state wide.

    Turn it over to local contractors similar to check stations. This would be cheaper than hiring more employees or even tying up 750 current staff. Add a $5.00 collection fee for each deer at time of collection. How serious is the need for testing? Find away to get info statewide and show us. However having the info is probably worthless.

    does anyone really think these numbers are going to diminish?

    i mean for goodness sakes, mdc (a political and gutless bunch) allowed the hi-fence boys to "bring 'em on in" -- it will NEVER go away...we are down for the count.

    enjoy your wildlife management at work.

    Hunters would scream bloody murder if you charged an extra 5 bucks for testing so you would have to incorporate that cost into tags... they would still be pi ssed though.
    When the CDC recommends NOT eating deer or elk infected with CWD, how is knowing whether or not you have a positive animal "worthless"? How would knowing what the prevalency is in MO "worthless"?

    Thank you!!! Short of a cure, there is NOTHING the MDC or anyone can do! Well, they could eliminate penned operations and that would slow the prevalancy!

    An individual knowing whether their animal is infected isnt worthless to that individual if they care whether its infected. Knowing the prevalence... well, I dont really see what we will ever do with that info, if its even correct.

    the fee would and should be in a permit or tag that ANYONE who uses the outdoors should have to purchase, fishing, hunting, trapping, etc....if there was something threatening fish, as a hunter or an outdoorsman it would not be unreasonable for me to purchase a temporary stamp that is funding research for a cure.

    I think these numbers can be maintained instead of being allowed to grow like they have in other states that didn't do anything or gave up.

    I happen to think if you don't shoot the "right" deer it won't show up?

    So you are saying that people should ignore recommendations from the CDC?

    Should people care whether the venison they eat is infected or not?
