The DNR tested a deer on a game farm and it tested positive for CWD.Does this mean they will ban baiting in Oneida and surrounding counties?

The various DNR agencies are cagey about CWD; on one hand they downplay the concerns, on the other hand they tell you to not consume anything from a deer that has tested positive for CWD.

It's definitely not helping the deer herds. Depending on which source you want to trust more (Wyoming DNR, or Colorado) CWD could be killing off 19% to 25% of the deer herds annually. Those states had CWD significantly earlier, so maybe they are at disease saturation, and seeing more mortality due to the amount of the disease in the environment.

Everything I have ever read that is dire is from the vegetarian/vegan crowd. Everything I have ever read that was all forget about the boggy man is from deer farms.

We'll never know unless the CDC does something; the states seem incapable.

Eliminating game farms would help control the spread of CWD in Wisconsin.

The DNR insists that the deer are clean and disease free, yet game farms seem to spread the disease.

If the disease is in the soil of game farms, bringing in disease free deer will only result in more deer being exposed to the disease.

The game farms need to become extinct.

ihook-

If your not hunting at the bedroom door your not going to kill a big one early with bait. I wouldn't say I am hunting or have cameras in the "thick" stuff though. The whole general area I hunt is all thick stuff for the most part. I try to find openings to hunt that are close to areas I think the bigger deer will want to bed in. If I bump a deer and he moves a half mile then I will move a half mile after him. I can go about 6 miles in any direction without hitting private land so I hunt the deer where the deer wants to live.

I got burned bad this year by sharing trailcam photos of public land deer. So I don't share pictures of deer that are still alive anymore. Here are a few I know didn't make it.

Baiting has nothing to do with it anyone that spends plenty of time in the woods would know deer lick each other touch noses they spread there own saliva when bucks are fighting do you think saliva gets spread I believe the Dnr stopping baiting is more of a ploy to let everyone have a chance at seeing and shooting deer there are people that bait them and the deer stay on there property they don't have to travel miles to feed naturally stopping baiting will not stop the spread it may slow it but there is no stopping it and like previously said it hasn't spread to humans or killed herds so I say let it do its thing

My opinion on CWD and baiting are this.

CWD is a stand alone issue. It has been an issue in the western states for 20 plus years and has not wiped out the elk and deer herds. I still cannot find one verified example of CWD found in a human. The CWD prion is found in the soil, in bedding, and other deer frequented areas. CWD is also through transmitted through deer interaction. If the state was really concerned about CWD it would direct its attention on the one area where something could be done. Deer Farms. Double fencing for example.

Baiting is also a stand alone issue. It is either legal statewide or banned statewide. I personally don't care either way, but WDNR and State Legislature quit clouding it by tying it into CWD and make a decision.

Noluck, I dont think there is one case of it in a human. Also, it sure won't stop hunters from baiting . Ya got that right. Baiters will be baiters even if it turns them into violators. Is a deer for the ego so important that they will violate or take a deer illegally? Sure sounds like it. The true sportsman will not bait if it is illegal, but the slob hunter will keep right on baiting , violating shooting ofter hours ETC. Maybe we need to get serious about bating in the areas that it is illegal. How about $1,000 fine and 5 yrs without a license in any state? It doesn't look like Price co is going to ban bait. Now I have to put up with more baiters on the public cause baiters need to go Price co and bait cause Vilas and Oneida will have a ban. Oh well.

Does anyone know of a reported verifiable case of CWD in a human?

Just because baiting is banned doesn't mean people are going to stop. We sold 24 tons just yesterday for next fall, that is from just one gas station owner. That is 960 50# bags. The only guys you are going to hurt by banning baiting is the guys that hunt on public land and they need all the help they can get. You will never get rid of cwd no matter what DNR says or dose.
