If you harvest a deer from certain counties in the CWD Management Zone during Nov. 10 or 11, 2018, you must take your deer -- or the head with at least 6 inches of the neck in place -- on the day of harvest to one of the following CWD sampling stations listed below.
Select on the CWD Management Zone Map to the right to enlarge it and for more information.
The 31 counties for mandatory sampling are: Adair, Barry, Bollinger, Cape Girardeau, Cedar, Cole, Crawford, Franklin, Grundy, Hickory, Jefferson, Knox, Linn, Macon, Madison, McDonald, Mercer, Moniteau, Ozark, Perry, Polk, Putnam, St. Charles, St. Clair, St. Francois, Ste. Genevieve, Stone, Sullivan, Taney, Warren, and Washington.
They included new counties added to the CWD Management Zone, counties with previous CWD positives, and counties very near previous positives.
Telecheck deer before going to a sampling location.
Have completed permit information ready.
Be prepared to locate the harvest location on a map.
Position deer in the vehicle so the head and neck are easily accessible.
Have the detached head or cape with about 6 inches of neck ready for sampling.

Mandatory sampling dramatically increases the number of tissue samples MDC can collect in a brief period of time. The increased number of samples gives MDC scientists a much better understanding of the distribution and prevalence of the disease -- where it is and how many deer may have it. It can also help find new cases in new areas.
Opening weekend of the firearms deer season is the most popular two hunting days for most deer hunters. Hunters take about a third of our state’s total annual deer harvest during those two days. Focusing on this key weekend gives MDC the best opportunity to collect the most tissue samples during a very concentrated time period.
