Deer carcasses should be left behind

Chronic Wasting Disease has yet to affect the Door Peninsula but rules put in place to stop its spread may prove a burden to local hunters. If you are hunting in CWD infected counties you can still transport that deer home, although it is not recommended. Many states have restrictions on hauling a deer carcass across borders according to DNR Chief Conservation Warden Todd Schaller.


Meat is allowed to be taken but the carcass should be left where the deer was harvested. There are several disposal options including the DNR's Adopt-A-Dumpster program.
