Whitetail hunters have faced a lot of problems throughout the years when it comes to keeping both native and captive-bred populations in good health. CWD or Chronic Wasting Disease has been one of those major problems that has seen itself spread from being isolated incidents to full-blown outbreaks across the nation and by some metrics is actually spreading quite rapidly. A leading scientist for the North American Deer Registry and a professor of pathobiology at Texas A&M, Dr. Christopher Seabury, was recently interviewed by The Deer Farming Channel and The High Road Group with the exciting news that science may be discovering a way to cure CWD across the nation. The video posted below contains the who, what, why, and how of this exciting new research and I think it’s 100% worth your time to check out if you’re even the least bit interested in the effects that CWD has had on our whitetail populations.
CWD Cured? New Video From The High Road Group Gives Hope
“This is a must see video for anyone concerned with the future of whitetail deer. I’m certain that every Wildlife Agency in the country will be keenly interested in what this video reveals. I’m grateful to the North American Deer Registry for allowing us to bring this video to the market”, said Keith Warren.
Most interesting in the topics discussed in the video is the concept that CWD susceptibility can actually be bred out of specific deer herds and that this new research being conducted by scientists like Dr. Seabury could hold the key to stopping the rampant spread of CWD in this country. A truly interesting video for any outdoorsmen or hardcore whitetail hunter! Watch, and let us know what you think of it down in the comments!
This 52 minute online video features Dr. Christopher Seabury who is the leading scientist for the North American Deer Registry, a global genetic registry for whitetail deer. Dr. Seabury’s research on thousands of whitetails that were depopulated from CWD positive facilities has revealed very important information on how genetics play a role with CWD. Seabury has identified specific genetic traits in whitetails that can make them more susceptible to the always fatal deer disease. Seabury’s research is eye opening and reveals a strategic way to breed the susceptibility to CWD out of whitetail deer by focusing on Genetic Estimated Breeding Values.
