CWD in MT mule deer

Yet more tough news. A mule deer buck with CWD was killed tight to the Canadian border. This case is several hundred miles from the other cases.:(

Looks like it’s been in Wyoming for over 30 years.

Wyoming still has a winter feeding program for elk.  This congregates the animals so disease transmission within the herd is a higher possibility.  Montana's conservation people are talking to Wyoming about stopping this program.

Yes, as CWD creeps into that part of the state the winter feeding program probably ought to go away.   The highest densities of CWD in Wyoming are in the Southeastern and South Central parts of the state, as it's been there longer.

Gotta get out there for an elk hunt while I can. If they stop feeding them, tags are gonna get scarcer pretty quick no?

I don't think tag availability will be an issue in the short term in the places where the feed grounds are - mainly the western part of the state. A lot of those areas are general anyway.  But, absolutely do try to make it happen - it's a great experience and well worth the $$$ in my book.  Easy for me to say as a resident of a state with elk, but still, if you've never done it, it's pretty special.
