So why are hunters doing this? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fPn-Qmggp3k
Hunters should stop dumping potentially diseased and or pesticide filled deer carcass to the pantries, if you really "care" about the hungry start salvaging food with all your bubbah friend, grow some crops and feed the hungry that way but of course you won't do that because there is no fun of killing involved.
CWD/Mad Deer Disease spread by hunting
An Associated Press story speculates today that Wisconsin hunters, having killed deer in the area of the state known to be infected with mad cow-like Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), might have spread the disease around the state by taking carcasses back to their homes and dumping them in the environment. Yes, that is a possibility, but not the most obvious possibility. Feeding rendered byproducts is a much more obvious threat to spread CWD around the state, the nation and to other livestock. Extensive supplement feeding of wild deer to grow big antlers has gone on in Wisconsin's CWD eradication zone, and in fact all over much of the US. The supplements contain protein, minerals, and binders (fat), much of it from rendered slaughterhouse waste, the same stuff that amplified and spread mad cow disease in England. In Wisconsin in 1995 alone over 26,000 road-killed deer were rendered into meat and bone meal used in animal feed. Unlike Britain and Europe, the US still feeds billions of pounds of mammalian rendered byproduct back to livestock. As we document in our book Mad Cow USA, US feed regulations are so weak that cattle blood is used in calf feed. Such policies are inviting a disaster that could dwarf Britain's mad cow crisis since the US is the biggest meat producing country in the world.

As Wisconsin and other states face a growing epidemic of Chronic Wasting Disease, also dubbed the 'mad deer' epidemic, many outdoor writers, veterinarians and wildlife biologists are stumbling badly, dishing out inaccurate and potentially deadly human health advice regarding the risks of eating animals infected with this mad cow-like Transmissible Spongiform Encephalopathy (TSE). In the St. Paul Pioneer Press writer Chris Niskanen claims that "The World Health Organization reports no evidence that humans who consume deer that have the illness can contract CWD or any related illnesses." Actually, there is scientific evidence that 'mad deer' might infect humans, and what WHO has emphasized is that no part of any animal infected with any TSE disease, including CWD, should be consumed by a person or animal. Robert Shull, the director of the state of Wisconsin's Veterinary Diagnostics Lab says that "the hunting population has almost been whipped into a frenzy about the need for testing on their animals. If I shot what looked to be a healthy deer, would I eat it? You bet I would." Really? That's a bad idea. It is impossible to test a live deer for 'mad deer disease' and a healthy looking deer could very well be infected. The State of Wisconsin is desperate that hunters continue to kill deer and buy licenses to fund state conservation programs, but misrepresenting the dangers of eating venison and sausage from infected animals is reprehensible.

What happens to your body with CJD/Mad Deer/CWD
What the government isn't telling you about mad deer disease.
Human incubation is 20 to 40 years, but no one survives more than two years after Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) goes active. Unlike AIDS, CJD can kill almost all known species of vertebrates. Unlike bacteria or virus, Prions are not killed by several minutes of boiling, baking, chlorine, alcohol or by any known antibiotic or antiviral agent.
