Bad news for the Western UP. MDNR will have to ramp up testing and perhaps consider enacting a bait ban in Gogebic and Iron counties, given how far deer travel to yard up. http://wxpr.org/post/first-wild-cwd-deer-found-oneida-county#stream/0 The DNR has confirmed that a wild deer has tested positive for chronic wasting disease in Oneida County, in the town of Crescent. As required by law, this finding renews Oneida County's existing baiting and feeding ban for another three years. Additionally, this positive will renew the two-year baiting and feeding ban in Langlade County. The CWD-positive one-year-old doe was harvested on a disease surveillance permit issued within a 10-mile radius of the recent Lincoln County positive detection. This is Oneida County's first CWD-positive wild deer. The DNR's Eric Lobner says Oneida County detection is a direct result of our surveillance efforts put in place in response to the Lincoln county CWD positive.
