A "proactive hunting surveillance" approach of shooting and testing deer likely to harbor the causative agent of chronic wasting disease (CWD) without leading to undesirable population declines achieved a 99% CWD-free rate within 3 to 5 years, in comparison to 10 years using the typical preemptive sampling strategy, according to a Norwegian modeling study published today in Nature Communications.
