DNR encourages CWD testing this deer hunting season

MADISON (WKOW) — Deer hunting season is right around the corner.

Archery and crossbow season begins on September 14.

The Department of Natural Resources encourages hunters to have their deer tested for chronic wasting disease.

Testing is available statewide and is free of charge.

This year there will be enhanced surveillance in 18 counties in northern Wisconsin — but testing is not required.

The DNR offers both in-person testing services and self-service options, in which you would drop off a sample to be tested at a kiosk location.
