Depends. Would you rather have your herd decimated in the matter of a couple months or never at all?
This is a question asked to drum off fear to an audience that doesn't understand either disease.
Is E.H.D. a good choice of comparison of which is worse vs. C.W.D.?
It does not create much response beyond knowing doe kill are often reduced following an outbreak of E.H.D. . And the usual perception is the locale will see deer become re established in time in appreciable numbers if managed for such.
In terms of perception via dead deer en masse ,E.H.D. jolts emotion more tangibly when viewing the decimation. It's erratic cycle/ occurrence is different in threat than C.W.D. , but those it affects will have a different perception of it's impact on hunting., compared to those who are not affected by it.
That may be the closest comparison of the two .... (If one or both is affecting your hunting grounds you won't like having either).
C.W.D. emotional response is more theory than actual result based. "Where are the bodies?" is an example.
E.H.D. can be considered better known as to cause and effect.
C.W.D. can still be studied farther in the realm of science to be better known.
A steady tenacious hard to kill stalker in C.W.D. , vs a sporadic (outbreak fluctuation times) mass attack of short but heavy killing duration with E.H.D.. Neither are welcomed as disease presence.
Both diseases combined pale in comparison to what predators take annually.

Ehd is comes and goes. CWD continues to spread year around, and builds up in the enviroment. It increase slower in some spots but it does.
Here's something I came across
You answered a question that wasn't asked. Pretty typical for most any CWD/Disease discussion.
I, me and mine isn't an argument, it's a defense.
