Q:Just read late last week that Iowa DNR confirmed its first case of CWD in Allamakee County. I don't know anything about it and I tend not to believe everything the Iowa DNR tells me. Who knows a little more about it that can give me some basics on the disease? (how it spreads, what it does, symptoms, should I believe the DNR when they say isolated problem or is it likely to be more widespread?)
Q:For years of genetic manipulation of farm raised deer have created bucks with massive antlers. Farm raised deer are growing these antlers at a early age. Everyday these deer are being fed the best antler growing feed. These same giant rack bucks are placed in high fence hunting reserves across this country and in Canada. A "fat cat" hunter with tons of money wants a record animal and will pay anything to get his trophy. I think these cage hunts and breeding deer farms are a disgrace and unethical. What is your opinion? Is this suppose to be fair chase? How does Boone and Crockett or Pope and Young know a farm raised pen animal from one born free in the wild?
