    So what's the scoop on CWD in Colorado around the Denver area?

    Is it just deer or do elk get it too?

    Elk get it to.

    If concerned in the unit you hunt, get them checked for the $15.00 fee.

    I hunt Colorado to.

    Both Deer and Elk get CWD. Antelope are from a different line and so far do not get it.
    In the "Denver area", there have been a couple of cases found around Boulder, but otherwise none reported. Further north along the front range quite a few cases.

    My opinion is that it is overblown and over-reacted to, but feel free to formulate your own.
