HAPPY NEW YEAR! We're back with a brand new intention! 

This episode is the first in a series about the spreading epidemic in deer called Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD). Listen to local Montana expert Brent Race, veterinarian for the Rocky Mountain Laboratories, (RML) infectious disease study center out of Hamilton Montana. Also joining us is good friend Tyson Woods, micro biologists who also works for RML.

We go ask the obvious questions like how does it effect deer? Is it transmitted to humans? Can you tell if a deer has it in the field? How is it spread? and many many more.

Please join us as we start the new year off right by bringing you more of what you've asked for, entertaining and educational podcasts brought to you by Shoot'n The Bull Podcast.
