You donít know if the animal has a disease, thatís why we cook em. No different than US certified beef, pork or chicken. Thereís always some risk so they say cook it well done. Now, I donít like it well done so I take a little more risk with medium rare. I also process my own venison so they donít mix someone elseís rotten meat in with mine.

Game management people are very aware of diseases in wild game and try to manage them thru various means.One thing to keep in mind here is that MOST diseases are "Speices specific"ie:deer type diseases do not effect humans,you can't give your cat measles etc.When there is a concern,advisorys are loudly published and if in time printed in hunting/fishing rule books and/or posted on signs at acess points to to affected area.Thorough cooking/careful preparation will destroy most varmints that could have an effect also.Check w/game management about your concerns for as they say"Knowledge Is Power"
