Cervid: Whitetail Deer

To date, South Dakota has found 216 cases of CWD (150 deer and 66 elk) in free ranging deer and elk since testing began in 1997. Wind Cave National Park accounts for 51 of these animals (41 elk, 10 deer). Four elk and 1 deer have been found in Custer State Park. A total of 24,640 wild deer and elk have been tested for CWD since 1997.

I read this today on another site. Does this look like a disease that is going to wipe out the states wild deer or elk. We are talking 25.000 samples here and 16 years testing. We lose that many deer up here during a bad winter!!!!

Wow, with 8,863 car accidents in S.D. in one year with deer, makes CWD look insignificant doesn't it?

I haven't seen to many deer survive a car accident, have you? Do you suppose the DNR will start banning cars?

I read this in a news story.

__________________________________________________ _________

State Farm reported that deer-related collisions have grown by 7.7 percent in the United States in the past year. Between July 1, 2011, and June 30, 2012, an estimated 1.23 million collisions with deer have occurred nationwide. During that same period, South Dakota had 8,863 deer-related accidents.

How states rank

South Dakota jumped from third place to second place in the past year for the top 13 states listed by likelihood that its residents will experience a deer/vehicle collision, according to a State Farm insurance analysis.

1. West Virginia

2. South Dakota

3. Iowa

4. Michigan

5. Pennsylvania

6. Montana

7. Wisconsin

8. Minnesota

9. Arkansas

10. Virginia

11. North Dakota

12. Nebraska

13. Wyoming

Mike, This is the kind of stuff you need to show the paper and your legislatures at the capital when you argue about rules the DNR wants to impose on us . It kind of puts CWD in perspective. Do you have the link to the whole story?

I'm just confused as to how that many people could hit a deer in South Dakota? There's no trees there! How can you not see them for miles and slow down?

Cervid: Whitetail Deer

Gary this is where i found this info. Is it not funny how many states on that list are CWD positive states. I thought they said this disease was going to run rampant through any state that got CWD and would kill off the herd!

And this link will show you how many reported EHD dead deer in 1 year. Sure looks like more died in 1 year of EHD compared to 200 plus deer in 15 years!! How do they not see this?

Clam river, I think the insurance companies rank these states on per/capitia. Your right there are no trees, but I see the same over here in Minnesota. If you go along I-90 or where 52 is four lane going to Rochester, in the fall there are dead deer all over, and you can see for along ways on these roads. My son is a deputy sheriff over there. He tells me most deer are hit at night.

Mike, Thanks for the links. I know it's shows S.D., but if you dig further you may be able to find this data for N.Y. Like I said numbers like this kind of puts CWD in perspective. You can find your states number by googling car accidents by deer in [your state].

I also found this from 2010 for Iowa, this also shows the ave. costs of accidents. Does the DNR subtract this from their economic impact studies of wild deer hunting?

I have brought this up at our state cervid meeting with the DNR, they don't want to talk about this. Also they don't want to talk about subsidizing farmers for their grain loses/damages that the wild deer do on corn/soybean fields. If you every get into a public forum debating with a DNR rep. bring these up, watch how fast the crowds attitude changes.

Kind of makes it look like high fenced preserves are the way to go!

Deer Collisions Up 21%, Iowa Ranks 2nd In U.S.

Deer collisions on America’s roads are up.*State Farm Insurance says it saw a 21% increase from five years ago, and Iowa ranks second for total deer-vehicle collisions.* State Farm predicts 1 of every 67 drivers in Iowa, second only to West Virginia, will hit a deer within the next year at an average cost of $3,100.* The Washington County Public Safety Center says drivers should always report a deer collision for public safety and insurance purposes.* The Iowa DOT says 3,490 drivers reported deer-vehicle collisions in 2009, causing nine motorist deaths and an estimated 383 injuries. Since 2001, 68 people have died in Iowa as a result of motor vehicle crashes involving animals.

Cervid: Deer Farming
If you've ever driven down a road with corn fields on either side of you, it is hard to see much of anything when the corn is tall. Deer could pop out anywhere.

Exactly, four years ago my wife had a deer run into the side of her car. Two weeks later in the exact same spot in the highway another deer ran into the side of her car and hit the same spot on the car. What's the odds of that. A friend of mine sent me picture of someone hitting a moose in Alaska. If I knew how to download it to this site I would. The moose head was sticking out the back window of the car. I'm glad we don't have moose down here.

Here is some more news we should all find interesting. To sum up what's going on, Wind cave national park is high fenced and does not allow hunting by humans, Custer state park does allow a small amount, mostly because the mountain lions are so thick they have killed most of the elk populations, NOT CWD. Last year 70 elk calves were collared in Custer state park and 1 lived until fall without being "caught and killed" by lions. Two times elk have been attacked right under the helicopter after being darted and these over educated "biologists" are still having trouble figuring why the are having such poor calf elk recruitment, Unbelievable! Basically they want to herd elk out of one park that is known to be "a troubled area for CWD" and herd them into the rest of the Black Hills where the population has been decimated by mountain lions over the last decade along with over selling cow elk tags as the popualtion continues to decline. It seams that when they have something that may interfere with plans THEY have, CWD has no major affect on any wildlife populations. Pretty interesting.

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Some critics of a plan to relocate elk in the Black Hills are worried about the spread of chronic wasting disease. Wildlife officials at Wind Case National Park and adjoining Custer State Park plan to use helicopters to push hundreds of elk out of Wind Cave, where they have outgrown available habitat. John Wrede, former state Game, Fish & Parks Department wildlife specialist, tells the Rapid City Journal that Wind Cave is a troubled area for chronic wasting disease and forcing elk out of the park works against containing the fatal brain disorder. John Kanta, Game, Fish & Parks regional manager in Rapid City, says officials have discussed the possibility of spreading the disease, but doesn't believe the impacts will be dramatic. The relocation is planned for early March.

"but doesn't believe the impacts will be dramatic" ????? Moving elk from a "troubled area" for CWD to a new area. We would go to jail if we tried this. This is the problem with the "Federal Rules", the wildlife agencies want to be exempted. Can you say "double standards" !!!!

Cervid: mule deer,whitetail,elk,goats,bighorn & stone sheep & Alaskan dahl sheep
Looks like this was a possibility in 2013 but it is now 2017 and I haven't heard a thing about this vaccine. So what happened just a way for a grant for these agencies?
