The state of Wisconsin is asking hunters to test their deer for CWD before eating them.
The state yesterday encouraged hunters to either drop off deer heads at remote sites, have their butcher or taxidermist save parts of the deer, or make an appointment with the DNR to have the deer tested. There have been no confirmed cases of CWD in people, but there are plenty of cases of CWD and deer in Wisconsin. Bow hunting season is open in Wisconsin, and more deer hunting seasons open next month.
The DNR says hunters can help them track, and hopefully stop the spread of CWD across the state.
