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.
How many times have you wished for a better view across a clear cut, an agriculture field or down a powerline?
Ever wanted to get a little higher to try to get above a deer’s nose?
Have you ever wanted a taller stand because… well… just because?
Here is an example of a stand I made a few years ago and it has some very real advantages and a few disadvantages.
commanding view from the stand
able to accommodate two hunters, perfect for parent / child hunts
hunters are well...
