Study: Killing More Bucks Lowers CWD

by | Jun 24, 2014
A study by University of Wisconsin-Madison scientists suggests the best way of stemming the spread of chronic wasting disease among whitetail deer is to kill more bucks, which are most likely to carry CWD and spread the disease among the species.
The study, released March 21, suggests the disease can be reduced if hunters target its most likely carriers.
The study was led Dr. Christopher S. Jennelle and Professor Michael D. Smith, both of Wisconsin-Madison. Jennelle, Samuel and their research team studied deer-harvest data from Wisconsin’s 2002-2013 hunting seasons, evaluating rates of CWD infection and analyzing how alternative management plans would affect CWD and the herd.
