By Northwest Region October 1, 2013

SPOONER, WI - During the bow and gun deer hunting seasons the Department of Natural Resources -- in cooperation with local businesses -- will be collecting lymph nodes, or deer heads for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) testing. If you shoot a deer within a 10-mile radius of Shell Lake, please contribute a sample for CWD testing.

The information collected will help establish what, if any impact, CWD has on the local deer herd and maybe used in making CWD management decisions in the region. The agency's goal is to collect 500 samples to test for CWD within the 10 mile area, and the cooperation and help of hunters is critical in achieving the goal, DNR officials said.

The following registration stations, meat processors, and taxidermists will be collecting samples during the upcoming seasons:
