Minnesota-(Ammoland.com)- Southeastern Minnesota hunters in the 300 series deer permit areas should be aware that the Department of Natural Resources will be testing for chronic wasting disease (CWD) during the fall 2016 deer season.

Most testing will happen during the opening weekend of the statewide season A firearms deer season that begins Saturday, Nov. 5.

“Hunters’ support and cooperation is important and greatly appreciated,” said Adam Murkowski, Big Game Program leader. “We want to keep deer populations healthy and healthy deer are vital to Minnesota’s deer hunters and deer hunting traditions.”

During this time hunters in some areas may need to register deer in person because phone and internet registration will likely be shut down until sampling goals are reached.

More information about CWD testing is available at www.mndnr.gov/hunting/deer/cwd.
