    Isn't that the area where they caught that group that had smuggled deer from infected areas from out of state herds???

    Food plots as well. Find and destroy crow roosts.

    Appears that MDWFP has banned supplemental feeding on the closest six counties....why crow roosts?

    Well it,s bad. Only good thing that I can think of is that the MDWFP will know how to deal with it since other states have been having outbreaks for years.
    Another disease carrier of disease in mammals is the various types of ticks. I let a friend skin a deer back in November on my skinning rack. That deer a doe, had more ticks than I had ever seen on a deer, I was an avid bowhunter back in the 70s and 80s and this was worse than early October killed deer.

    Annual flooding is right around the corner,that may help cull infected animals.

    It was just a matter of time, bald eagles are scavengers too, I’ve seen them eating car killed deer on I55.
    If it spreads it won’t be crows alone,, my gosh!

    If you have to pour corn on the ground to kill a deer in MS, IMO, you ain't much of a hunter. Yet everyone says it want hurt anything. Well, the chickens are coming home to roost.
