Has any one been following this? Once again, TPWD who doesn't have jurisdiction over animal health is proposing rules on our industry governing animal health and importation of deer into TX. If I had to guess they're positioning themselves for and future federal rules. What ever happened to interstate commerce?



I think this is versy short sighted. I predict its just a matter of time before the high end doe will be more valuable out of state based on genetics and the hardeyness of some of these deer.



I will be writing to Clayton Wolf and am interested in any thoughts anyone may have.

Cervid: Deer
I only glanced ...didn't read any of it and Two things stand out...Sounds like this could be a whole new can of worms for you all...Best of luck!

Proposed new subsection (d) would stipulate that possession of a deer breeder’s permit is not a defense to prosecution under any statute prohibiting abuse of animals. The proposed new subsection is identical to current subsection (d) and is necessary to ensure that deer are humanely treated.



Proposed new subsection (e) would prohibit deer breeders from exceeding the number of breeder deer allowable for the permitted facility, as specified by the department on the deer breeder’s permit. The proposed new subsection is identical to current subsection (e) and is necessary because only by establishing the number of deer that may be lawfully possessed in a given facility is the department able to prove cases in which people have obtained deer unlawfully

I was told by my State Livestock Health authorities that they thought EHD and Blue tongues main reservoir host hold over of the virus for the next year’s outbreak was cattle.

Also MCF is caused by sheep and they are the reservoir host for that virus.

Does Texas allow sheep and cattle from out of State into Texas?

If this is the case and the virus has a reservoir host other than deer it would seem the Fish & Game of Texas is setting up for something else.

The emergence of numerous disease threats points to the need for the department to be proactive in protecting the state’s wildlife resources and the multi-billion-dollar hunting and ecotourism industries that depend upon them. The department strongly believes that prohibiting the entry of deer from other states is a critically important step in minimizing to the greatest extent possible the potential biological and economic impacts that a disease outbreak could cause in Texas.
