Mississippi CWD deer was a local
quote:

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks received results of DNA testing done on a male deer that was found to have chronic wasting disease last month in Issaquena County and they paint a different picture than many have suggested. "What they know is they compared the genetics of that deer with known genetics they have," said Russ Walsh, MDWFP Wildlife Executive Staff Officer. "The results suggest the genetics match those of free-range deer." And not just any free-range deer. The genetics match those of samples taken from the Mississippi Delta, which means the deer was not imported, as many have speculated.

So, the buck being a local deer tells us there are likely more cases out there.

Looks like it takes 4-5 years for the animal to die from cwd.... many bucks have no chance of making that normally. I would suspect there are many more out there that have gone undetected

And they're all getting wadded up together right now due to the river flooding. Not a good scenario, I wouldn't think..

Supertalk Radio this morning mentioned something about 16 deer tested for CWD in the same area. Not sure where they got the info from or what they exactly meant by that.

I was reading a few stories from other states with CWD and they classify areas as Disease Management Areas(DMAs) and then the #. Scary to think we may be heading that way before long. Instead of Area # will we be hunting in DMA #?

Call me paranoid but I ain't eating a deer from a Disease Management Area

I'm pretty mad at deer, but if CWD is found close to where I hunt, I will go elsewhere

0 cased of CWD ever transferred to humans. CWD has been around since the late 60's in Colorado....

There were 0 cases of cow to human infection until it first happened in 1996. Cows can have a prion disease called BSE(Mad Cow)just like CWD in deer. Now it is well known that you can get a human form of BSE called vCJD from eating nerve tissue of cattle with BSE. What happens if you shoot CWD deer in the backbone and blow spinal fluid all on over the meat then eat it. Maybe nothing but I would rather not find out.

Don’t shoot em in the backbone

Cut slowly around spine

Burn out prions in 400 degree heat

Good point jim. I wasn't saying we target that area but sometimes shots happen.

I don't remember what the exact temp was but during the MDWFP Q&A a biologist said the prions have to be incinerated at like 1,000 degrees for 2 hrs or more. I'm sure those aren't the right numbers but I remember thinking that the process isn't feasible for the vast majority of hunters.

That’s correct, we had a biologist come talk to us as well. Either way the meat is destroyed, there ain’t no cooking/freezing it out.

Deer to primate transfer in laboratory conditions has occurred, so...

Lots and lots of unknowns about this disease. Every article you read just has you asking more questions

Seems there are more unknowns than knowns

Could that deer have gotten it from a non-local deer? Could the cause still be from non-local deer and now local deer are infected?

Hell it could have been transferred down the MS river
