MDC has been testing free-ranging deer in the area of north-central Missouri where CWD has been found. MDC has also made regulation changes regarding CWD, has issued recommendations for hunters to help contain the disease to the area, and will continue to work with hunters in the region to test harvested deer for CWD. Our aim is to contain the disease and reduce the number of deer that may have it. We welcome comments on this issue.
MDC protects and manages Missouri's fish, forest, and wildlife resources.
We also facilitate your participation in resource-management activities, and we provide opportunities for you to use, enjoy and learn about nature.
