Boone and Crockett Club on Chronic Wasting Disease

Wednesday, April 11, 2018 - The Boone and Crockett Club, the oldest hunter-conservationist organization in North America has released a position statement on Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD).

"CWD is not new news, but its threat to deer and elk is increasing, which should be a concern to every sportsman," said Ben B. Hollingsworth Jr., president of the Boone and Crockett Club. "As hunter-conservationists, we've had to address threats to wildlife before, but none like this."

Chronic Wasting Disease is a highly-contagious, always-fatal disease that affects cervids such as deer, elk, and moose.
