CWD TEST KITS FOR HUNTERS
Chronic wasting disease testing options are available to hunters throughout Minnesota even if CWD has not been detected in the area in which you hunt.
If you hunt in a CWD zone, do not assume that healthy-looking deer you killed does not have CWD. Submit it for testing, and wait for the results before you eat the venison. You’ll be minimizing your own risk, and you’ll be helping the MNDNR monitor the location and prevalence of the disease. This information helps the fight.
Hunters can request a kit online or, visit the MDHA State office to pick one up. Kits, which are provided on a first-come, first-served basis, should be requested before your hunt. The kit and testing is free. Test results will be available online.
