States Begin Testing Deer for Covid, Urge Caution to Hunters

12/6/2021

After Covid-19 was detected in white-tailed deer earlier this year, several states are beginning to test their deer population for the virus. A study by the USDA’s Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service that tested 481 deer in Illinois, Michigan, New York, and Pennsylvania found Covid-19 antibodies in 33% of the samples — during the winter months, that spiked to an 80% positivity rate.

Amid Deer Hunting Season, Nationwide Ammunition Shortage Impacts Hunters

11/29/2021

From Wisconsin to Minnesota, New York, and everywhere in between, it seems the so-called Great American Hunting Ammunition Shortage that started during the early days of the Covid-19 pandemic isn’t going anywhere as hunters continue to grapple with nationwide ammo shortages. In the midst of gun deer season, hunting ammunition is becoming increasingly hard to find due to supply chain disruptions still lingering from the Covid-19 pandemic as well as surging demand for guns and ammo. Gun dealers around the country say they’re struggling to keep shelves stocked as firearms sales climb due to unease from the pandemic, civil unrest, and the 2020 presidential election. Pat Kukull owns Superior Shooters Supply in Superior, Wisconsin, and said this summer they had a shortage of shotgun ammunition for trap shooting, with vendors sending a mere two percent of the usual 500 cases they receive. She said there’s been absolutely nothing for pheasant, grouse, or waterfowl hunters. “Now, we’re moving into rifle season, and we haven’t had any .30-30 shells in a year to speak of, really,” said Kukull.”

Department of the Interior Approves Historic Hunting and Fishing Expansion

11/1/2021

If you’re planning a fall, winter, or even spring hunt, you’re in luck. The Department of the Interior has recently approved a U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service proposal to expand hunting and sport fishing opportunities across 2.1 million acres, marking the largest expansion of outdoor recreation opportunities on record. What’s more, the expansion will go into effect in time for the upcoming 2021-2022 hunting seasons. Under the historic expansion, seven National Wildlife Reserves (NWR) that were closed to hunting and sport fishing will open for the first time. Additionally, the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will open or expand hunting and sport fishing at 81 additional NWRs nationwide, as well as at one unit of the National Fish Hatchery System (NFH). The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service also made changes to station-specific regulations that will reduce the burden of regulations on the public. This move will make it easier for hunters and anglers to use Service lands and waters for fishing and hunting. The expansion is part of the Biden Administration’s America the Beautiful initiative to conserve, connect, and restore 30% of U.S. lands and water by 2030.

COVID-19 Affects New Population — White-Tailed Deer

8/25/2021

As the fall hunting season approaches and the COVID-19 pandemic continues, researchers have found the disease is impacting a new population: white-tailed deer — a species that is found in every U.S. state except Alaska. According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), researchers found COVID-19 antibodies in the blood samples of 40% of 385 tested white-tailed deer. They tested the deer in Michigan, Pennsylvania, Illinois, and New York between January and March 2021. "Given the percentage of samples in this study that had detectable antibodies, as well as the high numbers of white-tailed deer throughout the United States and their close contact with people, it is likely that deer in other states have also been exposed to the virus," a spokesperson for USDA told Nature. These findings exhibit the extent to which white-tailed deer in the wild can catch the deadly disease. They also demonstrated that deer are capable of passing COVID to other deer.
