    Yearling buck this time.

    On edit - Not a yearling, I confirmed with Steve Schmitt, this buck was born in 2013, so it would have been a yearling during last years hunting season, so dispersal (if it occurred) would have happened in 2014.

    Certainly disheartening to see a 2nd positive but it was completely expected. Will be very interesting to see if this buck is related to the index doe. I suspect there are more positives in the testing pipeline, the number will probably increase over the next month or so.

    If there is anything positive about it, at least it hasn't dispersed to a much wider area. (Yet). Still in the same area.

    The release says 2 years. This eliminates some hypotheticals and create some more. It will be interesting to see if it is related to the doe.

    That is not known at this time. And based on what is known about CWD, probably not the case.

    Unfortunately, the testing efforts have been centered around the core area. We are still fairly clueless about the management area and/or adjacent regions. But yes, as of now the circle only became one mile in diameter larger....

    At least it's less than a mile away from the initial case. I still think we have a chance to contain this. Just have to keep pounding away at that core area.

    Does anyone still want to argue about a goal of eradication?

    I just wish they would start the eradication. The effort so far seems a little weak to me.

    I don't know what it proved or disproved.

    The only thing, IMO, that it proved is that there's another deer infected. The amount tested is still way too low, again, IMO.
