x2! I would say population of the 2 provinces would make a difference in their mule deer population too. But I agree all the non residents not going there helps.

We have had our share of ups and downs with mule deer numbers too. I believe CWD is here to stay and has likely been here for a lot longer than we ever knew what it was. I have seen old bucks taken that have tested positive. They can live a long while without developing symptoms.
