The 2017 Iowa deer harvest is running 4.5 percent ahead of the 2016 totals. The disease is a progressive, fatal disease affecting the central nervous system of mule deer, white-tailed deer, elk and moose.

So far in 2017, a single CWD suspect has been identified in Westphalia Township, also in Clinton County.

In Kent County, three CWD-positive deer were found in Nelson and Spencer townships.

Until this year, CWD had not been found in Montana, though the disease exists in wild deer herds in Wyoming, North and South Dakota, Saskatchewan and Alberta. It causes a spongy degeneration of the brain, resulting in emaciation, abnormal behavior, loss of bodily functions and, ultimately, the animal's death.
