Default More info released on the CWD

I figured this was how LDWF was getting their test specimens for CWD. MS & LA Wildlife & fisheries killed almost 800 deer in a 25 mile radius. So roughly how many deer per acre does that equate to? Iím curious how much of an impact this will have on the population?

I do not know the actual acreage, but I hunt on both sides of the river in the CWD zone. That area is probably the highest deer populations in both states. At least in Mississippi it is. I do not think they did anything that would be a detriment to the population. But regardless however many the states killed is nothing in comparison to what the effect CWD would do to the deer population.

I am happy that both states took a very proactive approach to finding out about this disease.

If my math is correct.....

At 25 mile circle is = to 400,000 acres.

So killing 800 deer in this area is only = to killing one deer for every 500 acres. So this would be almost no impact to the deer herd.

That's not true, they did or are doing a big study in Wyoming. They are netting live deer from a helicopter and taking samples from deep inside their mouth. I think it's mostly mule deer but deer nonetheless.

Gotcha, I thought the testing had to come from the brain or spinal column
