Anyone here know how this went. I named it this because they waited till the does were carrying fawns. IMHO they probably killed more that CWD.

Total count was 40 last weekend. Lots of city slickers up hunting in groups to try to find some deer on public land.

They still don't realize we don't have the herd we did 10 years ago.

We all need to hope they don't find anymore with cwd.

Another bone headed idea by our DNR.I Was up there over the weekend and didn't see to many people out. They could have been shed hunters as I never saw a gun or heard a shot all weekend.

"start by killing every high fenced deer in the State" I agree 100% but unfortunately deer on game farms are regulated by the Iowa Department of Agriculture, not the IDNR, and ag interests in the state are too powerful. Same is true of nearly every other state.

They set up to kill them west of Elkader, haven't heard if any of the landowners are up for it. No public land there to speak of.

Most of our land we hunt during shotgun season was in the Clayton County zone by Elkader. Some of our guys went out and killed a few "samples" off of each farm to get tested. No cwd was found. I heard they had around 85 shot for the cwd season.
