Share the Harvest

Deer donated to Share the Harvest must be tested for CWD if harvested from any of these 12 counties where CWD has been found: Adair, Cedar, Cole, Franklin, Jefferson, Linn, Macon, Oregon, Perry, Polk, St. Clair, and Ste. Genevieve.

These deer can only be donated through the processors in the list below that are participating in the Share the Harvest CWD Testing Program and located in or near any of the 11 CWD counties.

Hunters can have their deer sampled for CWD before donating the animals. They must present the CWD barcode number provided at the sampling location to the participating processor as proof of sampling.

Hunters may also present their unsampled deer for donation to participating processors in or near any of the 12 counties and the processor will collect a tissue sample or the head for testing.

Hunters wishing to donate their deer from CWD-positive counties to Share the Harvest and preserve the cape of their deer for taxidermy are reminded that deer with the head removed are not eligible for donation unless a sample was collected and a sample number is provided.

There have been no known cases of CWD infecting people, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) strongly recommends having deer tested for CWD if harvested in an area known to have cases of the disease. The CDC also recommends not eating meat from animals that test positive for CWD.
