CWD Listening Sessions Draw Hundreds

Many of the top ranking officials from the Department of Natural Resources made their way to Wausau Wednesday for a listening session on Chronic Wasting Disease.

Hundreds filled a conference hall, waiting to ask questions about the spread of the disease, the safety of the venison, and what was being done in general.

With license sales down 20 percent from last year, DNR officials are eager to convince hunters it is safe to go back into the woods.

Many hunters just wanted an update, and they weren't passing up an opportunity to talk to the leaders of the fight on CWD.
