Missouri Dept. of Conservation to require mandatory testing of deer for wasting disease

Cold and wet weather mark the return of hunting season in the state of Missouri. The Missouri Department of Conservation reminds deer hunters deadly diseases can affect the deer population throughout Missouri.

Chronic wasting disease is a deadly disease spreading deer to deer in the state of Missouri. News Services Coordinator for the MDC, Joe Jerek, says mandatory sampling will be required in certain counties this season. Macon and Sullivan are the only counties in the KXCV/KRNW listening area where sampling will be required. Jerek adds hunters must present their harvested deer at designated sampling stations.

Sampling locations are open from 7:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. November 11 and 12. For more on locations and other information, visit\cwd
