On November 13th & 14th, all deer harvested within a CWD Management Zone county must be taken to a MDC Mandatory Sampling Station.

Hunters who harvest deer in a CWD Management Zone county must follow carcass movement regulations.

CWD Voluntary Sampling Locations

Hunters can take their deer, or the head from their deer, to the sampling locations shown on the map. The map below shows available locations for the 20212022 deer season. Click on an icon for location details.

Select MDC Offices

MDC offices listed as voluntary sampling locations typically can accommodate sampling during normal business hours. However, hunters are encouraged to call beforehand to ensure staff are available when they arrive or to make an appointment.

Freezer Drop-Off Locations

Self-serve freezers are available at these sites. Hunters will be responsible for packing their deer heads and filling out an information tag. Directions, packing supplies, and tags will be available at the site. Call 573-815-7901 x3901 or email WildlifeHealth@mdc.mo.gov with questions about freezer drop sites.

Non-MDC Partners

Each year, MDC partners with taxidermists and meat processors to offer hunters additional locations to have their deer sampled. Availability and hours vary, so hunters should call participating businesses before taking their deer or deer head for sampling.

Additional Opportunities

Hunters can also have harvested deer tested for CWD by contacting the State-Federal Cooperative Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory in Springfield at (417) 895-6861, or the University of Missouri Veterinary Medicine Diagnostic Laboratory in Columbia at (573) 882-6811. There are fees for CWD testing at these facilities.
