DNR Looks to do More CWD Testing in Michigan
09/09/2019- The Michigan DNR is asking for hunters’ help in monitoring and preventing the spread of chronic wasting disease this bow season. The agency is seeking more deer samples for CWD testing. They plan to gather about 2600 samples in the core surveillance area in portions of Dickinson and Menominee Counties near a location where a whitetail tested positive for the disease last year, as well as an additional 600 samples throughout an expanded surveillance area in Marquette County. So far, the DNR has collected about 150 heads in the UP, all of which have tested negative.
