Hunters watch for disease in deer

BEDFORD, Pa. Hunting season has already started for some hunters but there is some growing concern about the deer population and a disease that could threaten it.
The disease started last season in Bedford and Blair Counties.
Hunters said they are keeping a watchful eye to keep it from spreading.
"Obviously here in Bedford County we have a fairly large bear population," said Wildlife Conservation Officer Jeremy Coughenour.
"I've seen more people kill big bucks this year probably with the new antler restrictions that I ever have," said Dakota McClucas from New Paris.
A hunter in Bedford County shot down a deer that tested positive for chronic wasting disease, which is a death sentence for those infected.
The game commission is urging hunters to take extra precaution this season.
"Deer that are acting funny, or different, especially if you harvest that animal take a close look at it," said Jim Prohonic from Patton.
The game commission said they do not anticipate the deep population to be at risk this year but urge hunters to take an extra look at those restrictions to help in the prevention.
