Door and Kewaunee counties are among 16 in Wisconsin where deer herds have not tested positive for chronic wasting disease. Controlling the spread of the nervous system disorder has been the topic of a conference in Madison. Wildlife biologists from throughout the Great Lakes region have been sharing information on proven CWD control methods. Dick Baudhuin, with the Door County Deer Management Council, believes effective control efforts will be found in areas with large deer herds, like Buffalo County or on private game reserves.
Baudhuin also says drop off disposal kiosks for the remains from harvested deer are a step in the right direction for controlling the spread of CWD.
