This may sound a little off the wall but how about if we handled AIDS the same way we do CWD? The reason I say this is because I would be willing to bet that 95-98% of the deer they shoot show no symptoms of CWD, Someone tell me if I'm wrong but I think the real reason most of this shooting is going on is because of the presure from the insurance companies? I would have no problem with them shooting deer with CWD, but to just go around shooting with no idea what has what seem's ignorant, But then again I'm no expert. I have asked this worst case senerio question once before on this site but never got a answer that meant anything. One last thing here has anyone heard if they have tried to come up with a cure for CWD other than a bullet [8|] Hell give em some ROBITUSSIN or something lol. With as many people that are out there feeding deer and practicing QDM and such I would think that alot of land owner's would purchase a feed with some med's in it to fight CWD before they would let the DNR on their land to just shoot these animal's. And if it's on Public land use our tax dollar's and tag money to pay for it, Put our tax money to use for something worth while, And don't tell me that then we would have to raise taxes because they are going to anyway so use it on something us outdoorsman want for a change [:@] I would also bet that if we tested 1000 people that a few of them would have some funky dissease wether it be HERPS, CRABS, H1N1, etc, So why don't we run around shooting, After all it cost the insurance companies thousands [8|]. People I'm not suggesting that we run around shooting people or should we compare people to deer but the IDEA of shooting something because it could have something remain's the same.
