Hunters Asked to Help Game and Fish test for Chronic Wasting Disease

Top Stories

A reminder for hunters as deer gun season opens this weekend.

Game and Fish will continue their hunter-harvested surveillance program this season by sampling deer for chronic wasting disease in half of the states hunting units.

They’re asking hunters to participate by dropping off the head of an adult or yearling deer at one of nearly 100 collection sites across the state.

If you’d like to keep the deer head, they ask you to bring it to a game and fish office to have it sampled.

Fawns and deer shot in the cannot be tested.

Results will be provided within two to three weeks by email or text.

Samples from hunter-harvested deer taken in the eastern portion of the state will be tested from units 1, 2A, 2B, 2C, 2D, 2E, 2F1, 2F2, 2G, 2G1, 2G2 and 2L. In addition, deer will be tested in the northwest from units 3A1, 3A2, 3A3 (that portion of the unit north of U.S. Highway 2) and 3B1, in the west from units 4B and 4C, and in the southwest from units 3C (the portion of the unit west of the Missouri River), 3E1, 3E2, 3F1 and 3F2.

Hunters should note a carcass or head of a deer taken from units 3A1, 3B1 or 3F2 may not be transported to a collection site outside of the unit. Exception: deer heads taken in units 3A1 or 3B1 may be transported between those units.
