Can anyone confirm the reports of 2 confirmed cases of EHD positive whitetails in the wild in Macon County, Missouri?

There was a news story about it on the local radio station. It was reported that MDC found 2 positive CWD test on free ranging deer they tested in Macon County. Both samples were taken from mature bucks.

Just opened my new NRA magazine and there is an artical called "kill it to save it" about how sharp shooters are wiping out the deer in northern IL because they have found CWD now in 11 counties. I guess it can't spread if the deer are all dead, unbelievable what these gov't biologists idiots come up with. These are the things that are going to keep pushing more people to high fence hunts. Here you have one of the best known big buck states that has thousands of people traveling there to hunt reading this article that goes out to 4.3 million members saying you can't hardly find a deer anymore. I bet the tourism department is pissed at this guy about now for writing this article. After the story gets told 3-4 times, pretty soon the word in the hunting community will be "stay out of Ill., I heard they don't have any deer left, CWD and sharp shooters killed em all". Just another chance that someone would have traveled and paid an outfitter but now has second thoughts because he thinks he may not see anything, Huh, might be a good time to try a GOOD high fence ranch, I know they have plenty of big healthy deer and are CWD monitored so I know they don't have that disease. Ever think that the gov't now wants to back off on the testing because the big scare meant to shutdown owning deer is backfiring on them, now it's all "there" WILD deer that have the disease and it's making the high fences look better all the time, might be the only place to hunt without having it in 10 more years.
