Due to concern from Idaho Fish and Game after two Idaho mule deer were found dead and tested positive for Chronic Wasting Disease, Idaho Fish and Game are organizing emergency hunts. The hunted animals could not be used for eating meat until AFTER it been tested for the Chronic Wasting Disease.
Hunting is still such a devoted and common thing here in Idaho. Even here in the gem state the decline is real. Stacker compared population to amount of residents with hunting licenses from the US Fish and Wildlife Services. Where the gem state 5 or 10 years ago would have likely dominated the top spot, now we sit at number five.
