Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is a deadly illness in white-tailed deer and other members of the deer family, called cervids. CWD kills all deer and other cervids it infects. The disease has been found in Missouri and is slowly spreading. The Missouri Department of Conservation is working with conservation partners to find cases and limit its spread.

MDC offers free, voluntary CWD sampling of hunter-harvested deer taken in counties of its CWD Management Zone during the entire deer-hunting season. Hunters who harvest deer outside of the CWD Management Zone can have their deer tested for a fee by other entities during the entire deer season. Get details on voluntary sampling locations inside and outside the CWD Management Zone.
