There are regulations in place that limit transportation of deer carcasses throughout Michigan. Carcasses from areas with CWD should never be disposed of on the landscape in CWD areas. See below for more information.
Within CWD areas, please help us learn about the distribution of the disease by having your deer head tested.
Places to bring your deer head for testing include DNR deer check stations, partnering meat processors and taxidermists, or a DNR drop box.
If CWD is found in a submitted deer, the hunter will be notified by phone. If CWD is not found, test results will be posted online within 7-14 days.
