CWD, Chronic Wasting Disease in Deer populations

I am plotting a whitetail hunt in Northern Missouri for this fall.  It has been several years since hunting there.  One concern I have is CWD (chronic wasting disease) in the deer population in that area. CWD is similar to mad cow.  I have read a lot of conflicting information but one agreement is that symptoms require a long time to appear maybe a couple years.  The last time I was there CWD was not a concern to anyone in that area.  Now it appears far more prevalent.   Just what are the risks?  What are the precautions are necessary?
