    Sound advice, however the nearest check station is 45 minutes away, I have 1 doe in the freezer that hasn't been tested (too late now) and not sure what I should or shouldn't do with 40 some odd lbs of untested venison that is probably safe. Playing the odds hasn't tended to work out well for me. Series of post exposure rabies shots, broken bones and plenty of scars remind me that if it can happen it probably will.

    As far as I know in Michigan they want the head for testing. They take lymph nodes and brain tissue samples.

    I'm pretty sure that in Michigan you look up your test results online.

    I can't feel anything but frustration and disappointment with the way that cwd has been handled thus far. This is something that has far greater potential reach than what people are currently lead to believe. While the thought of not having deer to hunt is very depressing, the potential for lateral (cross species) movement in prion diseases is very real. The more deer that contract cwd, tho more infectious prion build up there is in the environment and the more casual non hunting contact humans will have with it. That increased contact leads to increased risk of disease transmission. I'm sure people will scoff at my words, and wildlife agencies will never do what I suggest (so I'll stop short of actually suggesting it). The sad thing is that its very likely the beginning of the end for deer hunting, for a lot of people in a lot of areas.

    some jackA$$es brought in CWD+deer from out of state to some MS high fence areas.. a few of them are going under the jail.. I've heard from someone with green jeans that they there was a mass culling within the fenced area.

    Jail time is appropriate I think. That fenced operation will need to remain fenced and be left vacant for at least a decade, maybe more since there is currently no reasonable effective way to reduce or destroy prions in most landscapes.

    i'm with you. for me, it is a "play it safe" scenario. i don't plan on harvesting a deer for food, and that means on only family owned lands. i'm not an overly protective individual, heck i've treated my body like an amusement park for the better part of 25 years. i do however think this has to be a bit of an issue that can get away from us quicker than most think. the only deer i take will be to get tested. it's not a big deal to do and then i can let the property owners around me know the results. i'm just scared that this is just another thing that we are not going to get our heads around before bad things happen. what about transmission from deer to coyotes to buzzards to whatever? i'm positive i'm talking out of my arse but it seems it's spreading at an alarming rate. i might be overly cautious though.

    strange how it always seems to happen with our hobbies.
