    Live From The Woods 2019 Turkey Edition

    Opening day I had to work all night. I came home went to bed and got up at 11. I went to my spot and walked in there was a whole flock of birds there. I picked a nice tom of about 20lbs and was back home in bed by 1205. I'm going to go to the same spot on the 15th and should come back home with another bird.
  3. CAS would like see your data proving there's is wrong, or is that just a wag.

    Went down yesterday and fished Sugar Creek down in Ossian caught 3 browns 2 were 11”. I was going to go to Allen lake but it was to windy. I have to get over to Mill Creek in Patchville.
  5. Here are some trail cam pic from 4/13 As you can see there is a western NY mountain lion pic. they do exist
  6. No there is really no reason for a earlier opener or a all day season
  7. The DEC has released the 2018 deer harvest report seeing it is a PDF file you will have to down load it from the DEC web site.

    I hunt turkeys with a 20ga 870 with a jelly head tube and have killed birds at 40yds. With #5's longbeard this year i'm going to try #9 TSS shot just to see how that works.

    The CWD prion has been shown to experimentally infect squirrel monkeys, and also laboratory mice that carry some human genes. An additional study begun in 2009 by Canadian and German scientists, which has not yet been published in the scientific literature, is evaluating whether CWD can be transmitted to macaques—a type of monkey that is genetically closer to people than any other animal that has been infected with CWD previously. On July 10, 2017, the scientists presented a summary of the study’s progress (access the recorded presentationExternalExternal and slides Cdc-pdf[PDF 3.88MB]External), in which they showed that CWD was transmitted to monkeys that were fed infected meat (muscle tissue) or brain tissue from CWD-infected deer and elk. Some of the meat came from asymptomatic deer that had CWD (i.e., deer that appeared healthy and had not begun to show signs of the illness yet). Meat from these asymptomatic deer was also able to infect the monkeys with CWD. CWD was also able to spread to macaques that had the infectious material placed directly into their brains. This study showed different results than a previous study published in the Journal of VirologyExternal in 2018, which had not shown successful transmission of CWD to macaques. The reasons for the different experimental results are unknown. To date, there is no strong evidence for the occurrence of CWD in people, and it is not known if people can get infected with CWD prions. Nevertheless, these experimental studies raise the concern that CWD may pose a risk to people and suggest that it is important to prevent human exposures to CWD. Additional studies are under way to identify if any prion diseases could be occurring at a higher rate in people who are at increased risk for contact with potentially CWD-infected deer or elk meat. Because of the long time it takes before any symptoms of disease appear, scientists expect the study to take many years before they will determine what the risk, if any, of CWD is to people. This is from the CDC

    Here is what would happen if CWD ever jumps the species barrier. 1 the politicians will pass laws banning all enclosures and the eradication of all deer, elk and moose in any enclosures. Regardless if they test positive for CWD or not. 2 it will end hunting in this country as we know it. There will be a demand to remove as meany deer from the environment as possible. 3 it will collapse a multi billion dollar industry. So for those who think CWD is no big deal you may want to re-think that idea. WARNING IT'S NOT WEATHER CWD JUMPS THE SPECIES BARRIER BUT PROBABLY WHEN. Sounds pretty dire doesn't it. It's just what could happen.

    Can humans get chronic wasting disease? CWD is typified by chronic weight loss leading to death. ... Although reports in the popular press have been made of humans being affected by CWD, a study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention suggests, "[m]ore epidemiologic and laboratory studies are needed to monitor the possibility of such transmissions".

    DEC began monitoring for CWD in 2002 and intensified its efforts in 2005 after CWD was found in five captive and two wild deer in Oneida County-the first incidents of the disease in New York State.Nov 15, 2018 CWD-Suspected Deer Determined to be a False Alarm The New York State Departments of Environmental Conservation (DEC) and Agriculture and Markets (DAM) today announced that Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) has not been found in a suspected CWD-positive sample from an adult female deer killed by a bowhunter in Chautauqua County and submitted for testing as part of DEC's routine surveillance efforts. An initial screening test performed by the Animal Health Diagnostic Center at Cornell University suggested the deer as a possible CWD case. DEC and DAM immediately sent additional tissue samples to the National Veterinary Services Lab (NVSL) in Ames, Iowa, for additional definitive testing. DEC conducts confirmatory testing on all suspected CWD samples. Final diagnosis from NVSL indicates CWD was not detected. Although CWD poses a serious threat to New York's white-tailed deer and moose populations, there are no known cases of CWD transmission from animals to humans. this deer was killed in 2018 In an abundance of caution, DEC will continue strategic CWD surveillance in Chautauqua County and around the state as deer hunting season continues.

    If you look at PA with Ar's for about 15 years the last 5year average for 2.5 year old's or better has plateaued at about 57% of the harvest. NY with little in the way Ar's was at 54% in 2017 will that keep going up for 2018 who knows. We will need at lease 10 data points to see where and when the harvest will plateau. Both states use statistical molding to get there harvest data. PA's harvest reporting by hunters is in the mid 30% range and NY is in the mid to upper 40% range.
