As hunters, we need to reckon with a scary new reality: Chronic wasting disease has spread rapidly among wild deer and elk populations, particularly in the last ten years. If you don’t have CWD where you hunt, you don’t want it. This disease is 100% fatal, manifests slowly, and can remain in an infected environment for years. To avoid bringing CWD home with us, we’re all going to have to take extra steps in the field to be part of the solution. That’s why we asked MeatEater‘s Janis Putelis to demonstrate the best way to de-bone your deer and dispose of parts of the carcass that may carry CWD. This is a great skill to have in your arsenal and will help stop the spread of this disease. To learn more, click here!
