If a deer is infected with CWD and is a buck that deer will travel and come into contact with most deer in the area in his pursuit for a doe. and the does will get it and spread it to the other deer, so if CWD is in an area would baiting spread it more?
Yes, and if you think baiting will not spread the disease more rapidly and expose deer in higher concentrations then you are flat out ignorant because baiting, as everyone here knows, concentrates deer in a small area thereby increasing the risk of communicable diseases. Browsing is much different than "trough" feeding. I hope you can see that!
my ignorance blinds me from seeing anything. But I do not see baiting drawing deer in from afar. maybe I am wrong and the deer will travel many hundreds of miles after getting a wiff of bait.. Or it will just draw in the ones in the immediate area..
That is the most ridiculous thought I've ever heard in my life concerning the CWD and the travel of deer. What your saying is baiting is ok for CWD because it only feeds the deer in your immediate area. WTF. I've read articles of deer travelling 60-80 miles to winter, do you not think they will travel 10 miles to another bait pile and infect that areas deer as well, and then those deer travel another 10 miles to another bait pile, and on and on and on. Somebody tell this guy to wake up and smell the coffee or at least how far off he is besides me, please, because I am losing my patience with the narrow mindedness!
