Survival Basics

If there is a hint of good news here, it’s that you don’t have to worry about eating deer exposed to neonics. Although the studies raise important questions about the effects of these pesticides on wildlife, the levels found in deer are much lower than the levels deemed safe to eat in domestic livestock. “I don’t have any concerns at all about hunters being exposed to these low levels,” Jim Kelly, manager of environmental surveillance and assessment at the Minnesota Department of Health told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. The main concerns for hunters, and for researches, is weather neonics are compromising deer health and, especially, reducing fawn survival.
