    Is there a trend where when they test beyond goal (with the exception of Gratiot) they find positives?

    In areas of extremely low prevalence, testing beyond goal increases the chances of finding a positive. Herd density plays a factor in that as well. You can't expect to test 3000 deer in a county that only harvests 1000 deer. In other words, the ratio of tests to total population is just as important as total number tested. Hope that makes sense.

    59870 deer tested 117 deer positive they don't say how many were bucks, if they took away apr's the cwd positives would go down much more.

    117 divided by 59870=0.00195423%

    Have the came out with a map yet?

    I'm reading that as a total of 14 from Spencer TWP from 2017 & 2018. A lot for sure. Kent Co. did not have 12 positives in either '17 or '18.
