If I am to be insulted; first I must value your opinion.

At least Louisiana is taking a proactive approach to CWD and isn't just sittin' on it's butt waitin' to react after it shows up. They have a northern neighbor that instead of being reactive, desperately needs to be more proactive. Except they have to start givin' a crap about their deer herd having CWD first. Their wildlife agency has to be 100% focused on slowing it's spread instead of being focused on building $25 million non consumptive perpetual showcase money eatin' Nature Centers and a showcase Elk herd that hardly anyone can hunt while CWD continues to spread Lord knows where through their deer herd... :smack:

Well sort of proactive. Stopping feeding now that it is so close is kind of closing the barn door a little late. Also only 8,300 samples in 15 years. That's not very many. I think Arkansas had that many or close to it and still missed it long enough for it to get to 23% prevalence in the core area. Louisiana was probably like Arkansas in that when USDA funding dried up they quit looking but I can't say for sure but I can find out.

Arkansas, Louisiana and Mississippi need to be looking at sampling minimally on a scale like Missouri or more to really say that you are looking. IMO if you ain't going to look hard just forget the whole thing. Over 200,000 checked deer and only God knows how many more unchecked and the piddling number of samples collected here during hunting season is an awful showing. :twocents:
