More than 100 deer in Iowa County were euthanized last month after about 20 tested positive for the disease.
White Tail Deer
The National Veterinary Laboratory confirmed that a 15-year-old whitetail doe and a 2-year-old elk cow tested positive.
CDACs, DNR, Natural Resources Board, and individual hunters tugging on antlerless deer quota recommendations.
That's a sign the state's northern herd has regenerated.
Sandhiil offers two programs, one for kids ages 12 to 15, another for those age 16 and older.
Research helps confirm longstanding suspicions that prions can accumulate in the environment in areas such as mineral licks or feeding and baiting sites where deer congregate, and scientists believe environmental reservoirs of prions could serve as an additional transmission route of CWD.
Governor calls for enhanced game farm fencing, limiting game farm deer movement, and wild deer carcass de-boning before movement of harvested venison.
Deer farmers would have three options for enhanced fencing, movement of live deer from CWD counties would be banned, and hunters would have to bone out carcasses in CWD counties or take carcasses directly to processors or taxidermists.
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. It's Oneida County's first CWD-positive wild deer.
Discovery renews local 3-year deer baiting and feeding ban; five adjoining counties to see 2-year baiting, feeding ban.
The buck was born on the 15-acre farm in May 2015. It was part of a herd of 58 whitetails, along with 13 elk.
Feb. 28 was the 16th anniversary of the discovery of CWD in Wisconsin.
One board member said that the word "affected'' can be easily mistaken for "infected'' and hunters will look at a map of affected counties, mistakenly assume most of the state is infected and plan their outings in other states.
Increased surveillance and sampling, carcass movement restrictions and local community involvement are just some the goals.
"Entering and exiting the tree stand is a very frequent time for people to fall because you're in that transition period."
The ban for Lincoln County will be enacted for three years. Langlade County is within 10 miles of the Lincoln County positive wild deer, and due to being adjacent to a county with a CWD positive test result, a two-year ban will be enacted.
This new positive CWD detections.
With carcass-tagging no longer a requirement in Wisconsin, many deer hunters wonder about the accuracy of call-in registrations.
The hunt will be an added opportunity to harvest antlerless deer to help reach antlerless harvest goals and the county deer population objective.
Natural resources board member: No-minimum-age hunting change causing embarrassing perception in Wisconsin
MADISON, Wis. — Wisconsin Republicans' decision to eliminate the state's minimum hunting age has created an embarrassing perception that infants are roaming the state's woods with guns and created a loophole allowing adults to kill more animals using young children's…
Dan Meyer’s arrival as new Wisconsin DNR secretary cited as reason for delay.
Hunters reportedly killed 195,738 deer. That's less than the 197,262 killed last year and the 198,049 killed the year before, but more than the 192,111 killed in 2014.
