"By spreading the mineral over a larger area nose to nose contact is reduced."

Nose to nose contact is NOT required to spread CWD. The prions can live on surfaces or soil for an undetermined length of time before being transferred to another animal. The prions can survive cold, heat, and even fire.

We dont have CWD around here so I put out blocks and dump bags in the dirt. What they really love are Trophy Rocks. I enjoy trying to find the Trophy rocks. They roll them around everywhere. Today, may be 100 yards away from where it was yesterday.

Just read and
Milwaukee Sentinal article about a CWD research project in Alberta, Canada that they feed some Macaque Monkeys CWD positive venison steak ( equivalents to a human eating a 7 oz steak once a month) and the monkey contracted the diease. This perhaps points to the possibility that humans could contact it by eating CWD positive meat.
It is a very interesting article to read. Google Canadian research CWD project on monkeys.

There is so much we don't know about this diease and that's the biggest problem of all. And it even makes you wonder about if it's anti- hunter driven.
If you have time to do it twice, then you have time to do it once right and put your name on it
