West Nile Virus Not Transmitted by Consuming Wild Game

Thanks for this post. I was wondering just this same question after it was reported on the local news that there have been 7 birds found to be infected with WNV this past week. We have had barrels of rain this season and skeeters are overwhelming in the woods and swamps that I hunt.
I'll feel much better about eating those Doves and Quails that I hope to shoot in a few weeks.

No problem, JTapia. If your not already may want to use some mosquito repellant while out and about. There have been quite a few people infected with WNV this year here in Colorado.
