Chronic Wasting Disease

Recommended Posts

call your CO...but if you have a deer standing in your yard acting strange right now...it probably has a baby in the weeds. I came home today finding a doe chasing my springer spaniel around the front yard, then chased it into the garage..pretty exciting for my 9 yr old. she had 2 brand news fawns in our field.

What do you guys think? I was mowing around some trees today until I noticed a fawn that was bedded right under a white pine. It was facing away from me so I never really got a good head on look but its ears were drooping and it definitely looked like it wasn't going to live much longer. So I got up and left for about an hour thinking that the doe would come back. Went back to finish mowing to find that it was turned 180 degrees and dead where I had found it. It was somewhere between the size of a large cat and a small dog. There wasn't any blood at all and since couldn't have been very old at all it was very emaciated. Maybe it just was some other unknown cause.

Maybe Mom had got hit by a car and died? A call to the local Warden can never hurt they will take care of it.

i would doubt it had CWD> most likely mom died or somehow lost it. It couldn't be more then a week or 2 old at the most...the ones by my house i saw today were probably born last night. i wouldn't worry about it.

I think I would agree on the something happened to the mother theory. If you look at the CWD testing that they do in the state, if an animal on one of these game farms dies and is under 16 months old, they don't even have to test it.

Sometimes mom gets nailed, other time they just abandon them, nature is no fun and games that is for sure. I doubt it was CWD related.

Is there a number you can call if you suspect a deer to have chronic wasting disease?
Yes 1-800-bye-cwd-3006 wink

      The pups and I put on 10.5 miles today and flushed 3 hens, 2 grouse and I killed a pine tree, 1 rooster flushed wildly 100 yards to left of us. It sure was fun to get out and seeing some birds. We did jump a good number of deer.

      A couple of Facebook posters on Lake Vermilion Cabin Owners group said that there was still open water in Big Bay Friday Morning.  I am guessing that they may be talking about Oak Narrows.  I'm staying with my original freeze-over date of Thursday, December 1.   Somebody I know who went out fishing from McKinley Park Saturday said that Big Bay was frozen over.  He also said he walked all around the bay and found thicknesses of 1" to 5" of ice, so it is still very questionable.  It should be safe for walking by the middle of next week.   This site will have ice reports for the next week or so.  I will be up the middle of next week and should report on the ice by Thursday night.  The moderator has merged this topic with the Lake Vermilion Fishing Reports topic so I will switch to posting there when I have fishing reports.  Good luck fishing, but be very careful of varying ice conditions.

      Hi there, I am making sure that this is the location that folks will be posting updates for Ice Fishing on Lake Vermilion this winter (2022).  I think so but want to make sure as I plan on trying to get out next weekend, December 8-11.

      thanks wanderer.......even reports from lakes like leech gives me a pretty good idea of what the lakes i want to fish will be like. lot of past experience helps, and no doubt wheelers will be used soon.    we had a retiree.holiday union party last night. buddy said that his kid was on little Winnie with about 5 inches of ice and there moving all around the lake!!

      Leech lake has been 100% capped for about a week, I think.  Before you say that’s not a small, underfished lake, it’s just an example that you could prolly drive wheelers on your kind of lakes by now. 😉   I’ve been seeing a lot of 5-7 inch reports going into the weekend.  Sadly I haven’t cut a hole yet.  Still working on repairs and updates on our houses.

      Oh I didn't say I don't own several versions of Teslas, just that until this hell frozen over state changes I'll always find a use for the ice diggin' anchor. Will be a great post hole digger in it's next life use too
    • leech~~
      Yep no puzzy Tesla auger for me until they pry it from my dead hands!  😆
