I got some really bad news today when I found out that for the first time, a deer in Michigan has been diagnosed with Chronic Wasting Disease. So far the only case has been found in a three year old whitetail at a private facility in Kent County. The really bad news is that I live in Kent County and bow hunt there as well. I have heard horror stories of conservation officers having to wipe out entire counties of deer to prevent the spread of CWD. I’m praying that this is just an isolated case and that it can be contained, so that such drastic measures don’t need to be taken. Here’s a link to a detailed write up of the situation with CWD in Kent County, Michigan.
