Default not a word about cwd

started crop damage shooting last thrusday. Not one word about collecting or turning in heads or samples. Just reinforces my belief that that deal with the crop damage shooters turning in heads and finding one infected was just staged bs. If they really were conserned it would be easy to tell the farmers we have to turn in all the heads.

Yeah, it doesn't seem logical the DNR wouldn't at least test a sampling from every crop damage location. But then again common sense and logic don't seem to have much bearing on how the DNR and NRC make their decisions!

IIRC crop damage permits are does only. Does typically do not disperse to the extent bucks do, so perhaps there is less risk of CWD in your shooting area.

no our tags are good for bucks or does. We don't shoot bucks except maybe once or twice a year a spike way out there that we mistake for a doe. But that is a decision the farm made not the state. they don't want friction from the local hunters angry that were shooting all the bucks. This time of year you will see bucks hanging together and hanging with the does anyway. It isn't till rut starts that the disperse. We had 4 bucks together in the field Thursday night and the smallest of the 4 was a 8 pointer im guessing would have measured about 14 inch (hard to really nail it when there in velvet). One of them was so big it made the others look like fawns next to does. Go to any farm field in that area at dusk and you will see plenty of bucks out with the does. Probably some of it due to shooting off some does and keeping the doe buck ration closer to balanced.
