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?
