Voluntary CWD Sampling Statewide All Season

Voluntary Sampling September 15 to January 15

Hunters who harvest deer anywhere in Missouri throughout the entire deer hunting season -- Sept. 15 through Jan. 15 -- can have their harvested deer sampled for free CWD testing at select MDC offices around the state and through participating taxidermists and meat processors located in the CWD Management Zone. Sampling is voluntary.
