    Borrowed these from a Facebook page. Recent harvest far from the bTB zone.

    Only one way to be 100%. Check it in. I talked with the DNR when I checked mine in at Curran and she told me there were 2 that had btb.

    It’s likely. Hopefully whom ever killed it took it in for testing. I know I would want to be issued another tag if that was my deer.

    We are way short of goal testing numbers. Get your sample heads in even if you are not concerned with what you saw when you opened up your deer.

    That deer is in Lansing being throughly tested by the DNR.

    It was a 1.5 year old buck.

    It's on Mike Avery's page. Ortonville, Oakland county. Somebody commented there is a 2nd suspect there also.

    I hope not, that could be really bad with the USDA review coming next year. Maybe the one in Shiawassee wasn't an anomaly after all.

    I read that also. That's a large jump in area and I'm with you, I hope something was wrong with the story.

    These threads belong in the Deer Forums.....When they get moved to the Disease Forums, they don't get the visibility that they ought to.

    Moving these to rarely viewed forums is a huge disservice to the hunters, IMO.

    I agree. Should be paramount in hunters eyes so they can be informed as to what may or may not be happening with the health of the herd.
