MDC offers CWD sampling and encourages Share the Harvest

 With deer hunting in Missouri opening for archery season on Sept. 15 and for firearms portions in the coming months, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) wants hunters, landowners, and others to know key information about chronic wasting disease (CWD) and the Department’s related efforts to limit the spread of CWD in Missouri deer by finding new cases as early as possible and slowing its spread to more deer or more areas.
