    With very few exceptions I view comments from CWD Zone hunters with a tough ****, sucks to be you attitude. Being asked to do something you aren't going to do isn't much of a hardship, so quit whining that someone else might.

    Swallow your medicine and sthu about it.

    Okay so I had to shoot a 4 on the side all season or let them go but now it's okay ? There's no antlers to tell by anyways ! And now that the does are a few months from popping out fawns I'm thinking a fetus should be forming...........This isn't management anymore !

    Great area over there ...hard to eradicate with so much great cover I know a half dozen folks out your why but no serious deer hunters .Good news here is my 3 deer family group all made it this year so i should see a good number of bucks wander through this year .Having a food plot is a must around me .

    I’ve always thought the biggest concern with CWD would be our DNR destroying the deer herd.

    Once people stop hunting because of lack of deer they do not come back.

    When you guys talk about low deer numbers are you talking about 1 deer per 40 acre parcel or 1 deer per quarter section on average in your DMU? Low deer numbers mean different things to different hunters.

    IDK .Not good to have over populations of any animals but if researchers are right CWD stays around 30 years or more therefore it's unrealistic to think people are going to kill off all their deer they see every year from now on .IMO a modest herd should be the goal .
