(Minnesota) — The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is reminding state licensed deer hunters of the deer carcass movement restrictions in the effort to mitigate Chronic Wasting Disease.

For CWD management and control zones in the southeastern, north central, and south Metro areas, whole deer carcasses cannot leave these zones until a “not detected” test result is received.

If hunters do not submit their deer for sampling, or want to transport it outside the zones before the results come in, they must debone or quarter the deer and dispose of the head and spinal column inside the zones. The DNR provides proper dumpsters for hunters to use.

Much more information on CWD and the no deer carcass movement restrictions can be found on the DNR’s website.
