    Ha i was checking the game laws in VA.
    I need some help.
    They say it is aganist the law to bring a deer head into the state of Virginia If it was comming from NY,WVA,ILL,MN,Texas
    Because of the threat of CWD (Cronic waisting Diease)
    They say you can bring in de-boned packaged meat and the horns but not the head or carcass.
    You could bring in also a taxidermist mount too but no just killed gutted deer from these states.
    Have yall heard of this before?:noidea:

    I have not personally heard of this but I believe the disease resides in the spinal fluid and bone marrowof the affected animal. I heard last year that alot of the processors will not cut thru the bones of a deer in this part of the country. They will de-bone the deer but that's it. I don't know for sure about all of the processors but I have talked to a couple and all they do is de-bone. I process all of my own and I just grind the meat and make sausage.

    Never heard of that but we do have a 'special' hunt for unfilled tags the end of January in Winnebago, Boone, McHenry, Ogle and DeKalb counties that CWD is present and measured.
    CWD is not in my area at all. Illinois has no restriction on moving dead deer betwen counties that I am aware of. There is nothing in the regulations for 2007-2008 on that...

    No brains or bones...The CWD is found mainly in the bone marrow and brain matter...right now we have a study going on in 4 counties...They have found CWD in a few herds...
    Bad stuff...
    They also warn about processing deer with a band saw...it can spread the marrow into the meat...:noidea:

    And this is nothing new...the first case was an elk in Colorado in 1967 if I remember right...so 40 yrs later and they still don't know how to control it...

    The last game processor in this area, 50 mi. away, only accepts boned out meat now. A few years ago someone brought them an infected cow. :mad:
