Athens, GA -(AmmoLand.com)- To answer the concerns of deer hunters in areas affected by chronic wasting disease (CWD), QDMA has compiled recommend practices and answers to frequently asked questions in a free document that can be downloaded and easily distributed in affected communities.
“Michigan recently became the newest state to detect CWD in wild whitetails, and our members in and near Michigan’s CWD zone asked us for guidance on how they should adjust deer management goals now that they are faced with a CWD outbreak,” said Kip Adams, QDMA’s Director of Education & Outreach and a certified wildlife biologist. “We compiled our advice in a new document that can be used and shared by hunters in any area affected by this serious disease.”
