My neighbor post crap on Facebook about all the diseases I'm spreading though out the neighborhood every hunting season. Even had an officer come check me out this past fall.

The MO Dept of Agriculture continues to issue warnings about deer with "mad deer" disease. Every deer harvested must be checked and a significant number test positive.
We are told to avoid contact with brains and spinal column an any deer.

I know some people that should be applied to also, they are obviously infected in advanced stages.

In Alaska real men eat beaver. I am allowed to harvest one beaver a day under my Federal Subsistence permit. It must be either consumed as food or the pelt utilized. Preferable both. Quite good eating, a bit rich in oil, but that can be drained off.

Never ate beaver, but I did eat some nutria rat a few times. Looks just like a beaver with a round tail. You are correct, it takes a real man to eat beaver, especially if it's not cleaned properly.

BEAVER tail soup.

That will keep you warm on a cold day.
They are handy little critters.

There is a good market for dried castoreum.

IF THIS goes into fall,then yeah, I might pot a deer if it wanders by.. and if there are any left in my area.

Gottta believe the Jackpine Terrorists will be filling a lot of shopping lists with the local fauna if this drags on.

Wild game and the possibility of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies-

Really, really old news. Most state DNR organizations are monitoring the spread, so we know where it is and where it isn't.

Pretty obvious you are not a hunter, or you would already know this.

Here's another tidbit. It is a pan species disease. Therefore if it shows up in wild ruminants, say deer, most likely it will spread to other ruminants like cattle, goats, and sheep in the same region. This is the reason it is monitored so closely.

I watch a show on TV, Bizarre Foods I think. They harvested a wild pig/boar. When gutting and before preparing to butcher the pig they put on NYRTILE GLOVES. Andrew asked why? They said it was because the infectious diseases can be caught from the fur. Something for many of us need to think about. NYTRILE GLOVES are cheap. Use them whenever dressing wild game!

Can't find them today. They are gone with the bottled water and toilet paper. :D:

Good info. Can you show some links to infection cases?

Hogs in the south are covered in lice, thats why we use gloves. Sometimes.

People are hunting every year in this country, the dangers are minimal concerning infectious disease.

The real danger hunting after SHTF is other people fighting for a dwindling resource. With the number of guns and the night and heat technically and men with dogs, the game and live stock will all but disappear.

90% of the meat my family eats is wild hog and deer. 11 deer and 7 hogs this season. Been doing it this way for 20 years. Not once have I or a family member been ill from a game related illness.

Not saying it can't happen. The diseases are out there. Wild pork has to be fully cooked. But most folks that hunt know these things about the game we hunt.

Hunted when I lived in Montana, so tell me about it.
