CWD in Henry County

Recommended Posts

  • 3 weeks later...

Salt, mineral blocks, and feeders are no longer legal in Henry county.  Apparently, it is transmitted by the deer feeding too close together or something like that.  TWRA does not want you submitting the lymph nodes yourself.  They don't trust you to do it yourself.  They want you to take  the head cut off right below the white spot under their chin to a drop off freezer, taxidermist, or processor and have them send it in.  Not a problem if its a doe but I do euro mounts on most if not all the bucks I kill.  There is a processor who will charge you $5 if you want the head back.  

They can't prove its transmittable to humans but they have proven it can be transmitted to monkeys.  There was an unintentional study in New York back in 2005 when someone fed a bunch of people deer meat and then found out later that it had cwd.  The watched the people who were willing to be in the study for 6 years and they never showed symptoms.  It sounds like mad cow disease which can take up to 10 years to kill a human.  CWD kills a deer in 2 years which means the does that was found to have it probably got it close to 2 years ago which means its here so get your deer checked,
