In the Oct/Nov issue of Eastmans’ Hunting Journal (EHJ) I provided some background and updates on Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) and how the disease continues to be aggressively monitored and may be spreading across the West.
In a recent article from the Wyoming Game & Fish Department, they confirm that unit 105 in northwest Wyoming has confirmed cases of CWD.
“A map of CWD endemic areas is available on the Game and Fish website. The disease is fatal to deer, elk and moose. The Game and Fish is concerned about CWD and how it may affect the future of Wyoming’s wildlife. The department is currently working to update its CWD management plan through a collaborative public process.”
As we’ve done in the past, we will continue to update you when we know more on this deadly disease. Get prepared. Stay prepared. Hunt safe!
