    Did he have it tested for CWD?

    If I was a younger hunter, male or female, I'd be concerned about a possibility of it being passed onto infants in the future. Not worth the risk.

    Just curious. Did you ask him why he didn’t?

    I shot a deer in the CWD zone this past season. And while it was an extra trip to get it tested, it definitely was worth having the piece of mind.

    No he's my svc manager and I just don't bring much up, just do more listining, other wise it turns into an argument!

    It's his annual Christmas present to us all, he's really proud of his jerky and the deer he shoots!

    That sucks!!! I pulled a pack of sticks out of my freezer the other day and some how a hole got poked into the package. 6 sticks were ruined. I hated to throw it away. It’s not the same as throwing away regular stuff out of the fridge that may have gone bad. Just so much more of waste. Too bad, maybe next year he will do the right thing.

    I hear you on the work stuff. Not worth the argument.

    With less then 1% prevalence looks like the odds are in your favor. Heck maybe you have already ate CWD deer do you even know? Any weird twitching or slanted eyes yet?

    If 200 people shared 1 deer, they didn't eat much.

    Yeah no kidding we would do deer drives with 20-30 guys and we would always eat one deer that was shot that day.
