Dr. James Kroll To Speak In Chatfield On cwd

8 posts in this topic

Details are somewhat incomplete at this point.  What's known so far is that this is a non-DNR sponsored event.  The event is being moderated by North American Whitetail.  Q&A will take place and questions will not be screened prior to asking.  The topic will be something to the tune of addressing the facts and fiction of CWD. 

 

I'll post more if I can get my hands on it.  For now, February 8th, Chatfield.  Don't know any more beyond that.

Google the guy.  His life has been spent with the deer farming and high fence private hunting for released deer in Texas.  He was hired by Wisconsin and his report got at least one negative review.   He seems to think that CWD is not even a disease.... based on an article he wrote for the Texas Trophy Hunters newsletter. 

 

And he thinks it really isn't a problem since it takes a long time to show up and kill infected animals.  

 

  I was unable to find any scholarly peer reviewed publications by him. 

 

Anyway, google him.   And check out Wisconsin.

This is a link to his report as "deer trustee" for Wisconsin in 2012

Make up your mind.   Do your own reading of the scientific literature.

It's interesting more from the standpoint that he'll likely refute some parts of the DNR's response plan.  It's prudent to question his motives just as much as it's prudent to question the DNR.  Going to be quite the social experiment to see how this gets handled down there.

I am not sure that "refute" is the right word, but he will muddy the waters I bet.  

 

I am thinking that deer farms and their trophy "hunting" buddies are the main vector bringing CWD to new areas.

And thus the ones bringing him to the state to muddy said waters.

Or, since he seems to be one of those "self-promoter" consultant types, he could have offered his services in hopes of drumming up business.   It sure worked for him in Wisconsin.     

 

He does seem to have an orientation that is favorable to the deer breeding and farming business.

    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.  
    • I think you, or the person at Ace, meant "Sheet metal". That's what they're used for....sheet metal and HVAC work. They have a self-tapping thread. Look on your furnace where the sheet-metal ducting is fastened...bingo!   Also called "sheet metal screws".  Hope they work for ya!  
    • Reminds me of a memorable morning at our place when  THREE male's landed on a front picture window ledge and just sat there for a few minutes looking in.  What a glorious sight!  They were likely just moving through because we do not see them during a normal summer. In fact this summer we have noticed a decline in many species; no bluebirds at all, only a couple doves, fewer swallows, not as many wrens (but still plenty of them) and for the first time a pair of cowbirds. Normal mornings are like a symphony around here just about daybreak.
    • forgot I made this post, I fished a lake here in SD last weekend that has a sunken road way and bridge completely submerged. Its gotten to the point the concrete has fallen apart under water but you can still see most of the structure in tact but also some rebar etc.   I wanted to get a screen capture but as usual that exact spot was popular and already occupied with other boats playing bumper boats to anchor and fish near and I didn't want to intrude on their fishing space just for a picture. 
    • Good post and discussion. I'm convinced not more than 10%, and that might be stretching it and I include myself in the 90%, know how to use their equipment. Every fishing site is loaded with similar posts.
    • I looked everywhere for the screws in the first post and nobody knew what I was talking about till I went to Ace, where I should have gone first. They are actually considered a sheetrock screw! I can't see any use for them with sheetrock but I was told it was because of the coating on them. I have a beat up old trailer house at hunting camp and they are perfect for putting warped metal siding back together and super sharp like a self piercing screw. Sometimes they are called gutter screws too. The hex ones do work great for boots and four wheeler tires.  
    • I liked Lavine too, but coming off ACL surgery you get the feeling that he will lose some of that explosiveness that made him fun to watch.
    • And remember, turkey is not pork and doesn't benefit from high internal temperatures.   It dries out if overcooked.  160 is plenty, maybe even a little less. 
    • Also, turkey doesn't need to be "low and slow" to get to be tender. Crank the heat to 250+ if you like. I've had the smaller breasts done in just 2 1/2 to 3 hrs. FWIW, I just rub it down with olive oil and apply your favorite rub.  If injecting at all, Creole Butter is a nice, quick, easy option. Apple mixed with cherry or hickory are my favorite woods to use.
