Its past time to eliminate deer and elk farms in Wisconsin and nationwide. Whatever will the so called "hunters" do instead of purchasing  that ridiculously huge rack? Why they might have to go hunting actual free range fair chase animals. The horror.

I live in Washington County so this news hits home. Just checked the DNR/CWD testing data again and so far no wild deer have been tested in Washington Co (700+ samples) but I assume it is just a matter of time considering before it is discovered.

We had all our deer tested this year (Wash and Vernon Counties) and so far all have been negative. I agree with the premise that we need to take a serious look at the future of any/all cervid farms in the state.

The dnr wants us to shoot all the deer to stop CWD, but why not just shut down the source - deer farms!

And the reason we have deer farms is what......

Interesting read on the deer population decline in Converse County Wyo. I have three great mule deer on my wall from Converse County taken 15-18 years ago. In recent years during a couple elk hunts the decline in deer numbers (and quality) is very noticeable.

CWD naysayers in Wisconsin take note...

Thanks for the link. Great info no-luck!  This is significant progress.

I agree with Wicasa that mandatory testing would be ideal but is likely a pipe dream.

Thanks no-luck.  Interesting stuff.  I’d like to see WI’s entire captive herd tested, but I know I’m dreaming

Deer hunting has evolved into something I no longer wish to participate in. All deer hunting is deer farming anymore. Most hunters have more money invested in plows, sprayers, cultivaters, planters and some super duper seed than they do hunting equipment. Not only that, those same people tell you baiting is bad and what they do is nothing short of heroic. They tell you after six years of protecting does on public land that there still aren't any there. They can no longer blame over harvest so now it's wolves. Yet the private land bordering the public land has an overabundance of deer. We all know wolves honor no trespassing signs. Public land hunters are starting to learn who the wolves are. Deer farms aren't the problem that should be addressed.
