Depends what you define as a CWD area. According to the CWD map in the Hunting Information handbook, it's pretty common over in my area of kansas(northeast). I've never been worried about any of the deer my buddies have taken or the one I took myself.
There's actually only been one case discovered in Kansas, and that was in the far north west corner of the state. So not much worry ( yet ) in our neck of the woods.
Here's a link to info on CWD in Kansas.
Living in a state that has CWD, we do take precautions. First we handle the game with surgical gloves. Then we have the elk or deer tested. We do not eat the meat until we receive the test results. If it should ever come back positive, we will not eat the meat.
There are times when the deer are simply not moving and you're forced to make something happen. Maybe you're up against a full moon or hot weather. This is when a silent drive to force deer to move should be considered.
By silent drive, you're not yelling and making a commotion to scare the deer. When deer are panicked, they're liable to bust out of the cover on a dead run, and any shot you get will be tough to make.
A silent drive is different. It means playing the wind to carry the driver's...
