What hunters need to know about CWD testing

Some deer hunters in Door and Kewaunee counties are having their animals tested for Chronic Wasting Disease and conservation officials say hunters need to follow some steps to aid accurate testing.  Unlike southern portions of Wisconsin, CWD has not been detected around our area.  DNR Conservation Warden Chris Kratcha, however, says a few hunters are not taking any chances this season.  He says area hunters have to travel a bit for testing and simple preservation of deer heads is a necessity.



Kratcha says getting CWD testing in areas where the disease has not been detected will give researchers important data for their studies.
