    MADISON - State wildlife officials sampled more than 5,400 deer for chronic wasting disease statewide in 2014, finding 324 positive detections, primarily within the endemic area in southern Wisconsin.

    Within the Southwest Wisconsin monitoring area, encompassing Northwestern Dane and Northeastern Iowa counties, prevalence was found to be 25 percent for adult (2.5+ years-old) male white-tailed deer, over 10 percent for adult female deer, roughly 8 percent in yearling males, and nearly 7 percent in yearling females.

    According to Ryan, prevalence continues to increase within the department's long-term monitoring area in Southwest Wisconsin, and remains higher in males than females and higher in adults than yearlings.

    The above paragraphs are quite interesting. They indicate that MARs would have a very negative effect in a CWD infected area.

    besides the congregation of cervids in large numbers and disease risk factor there from baiting itself brings, there is still a risk factor for cwd via the bait itself, if your feeding them animal protein. it's still legal to feed cervids animal protein, even with the proven risk factors from cwd this brings. don't ask me why, it's just still legal...for anyone interested, please see ;


    ruminant feed ban for cervids in the United States ?
