I live in Shelby but my land is in McNairy. 

With any luck you will be good for a bit, except for the new regs.  There hasn't been one physically out of McNairy, yet.

NASHVILLE --- The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has announced its initial chronic wasting disease (CWD) response efforts were successful in the Agency sampling more than 2,700 deer for the disease in the CWD Management Zone with the assistance of hunters.

“Thanks to the cooperation of hunters and efforts by Agency staff, we exceeded our sampling goals for the CWD Management Zone,” said Chuck Yoest, CWD Coordinator. “The information gathered from these efforts is critical to developing a successful long-term CWD management plan.”

The CWD Management Zone, established in December, has grown to include eight southwest Tennessee counties. The counties are Chester, Fayette, Hardeman, Haywood, Madison, McNairy, Shelby, and Tipton. Tipton County was just added this week upon confirmation of a CWD positive deer harvested near its border in the adjacent Fayette County.

Statewide, TWRA was able to obtain samples from almost 5,400 deer during the 2018-19 deer hunting seasons. All CWD positives found were harvested in Fayette, Hardeman, and Madison counties.

 It will take until later in February for all the results from the samples to be received by the TWRA. Once the results are received and analyzed, final development of the long-term CWD management plan will be completed.

This has gone from 0 to over 163, affecting 8 counties (last # I've heard about) in one season.  That may be the fastest jump yet, well beyond the number of positives, of other States.

This guy is an idiot, he must be trying to get funding for research, or selling a book.  In the over 60 years that we have known about CWD, there has been 0 evidence that it has crossed the species barrier. Thats not to say it needs to be taken lightly, as it is very detrimental to the herd, and hunting.  But fear mongering for the sake of it, IMHO, is as detrimental as the disease itself. If in 60 years it hasn't shown itself, chances are slim that it will.  Of course, mutations and susceptibility to a specific strain of prion can possibly become an issue, such as mad cow and those unlucky few that got infected, so we must stay vigilant, but we also needn't get so scared of it that unnecessary steps are taken
