BOX; Tells us your views on chronic wasting disease

The spread of chronic wasting disease among deer in Wisconsin has enormous implications for Minnesota's deer hunters, and many questions remain unanswered.

The two biggest are these:

1) Has chronic wasting disease spread to Minnesota deer?

2) And can chronic wasting disease be passed from an infected animal to the people who consume it?

It's unlikely that Minnesota hunters will have clear answers to these questions before deer season, which means they face some tough decisions.


The P-B wants to hear from you regarding this issue, and later this month we'll publish your comments on this page.

Here's the question:

What effect, if any, will chronic wasting disease have on your deer hunt this fall?
