Archers can assist with CWD surveillance
In the Sept. 6 issue of Wisconsin Outdoor News, editor Dean Bortz writes:
WAUSAU – The state Department of Natural Resources is again enlisting the help of deer hunters in Adams, Juneau, Portage and Marathon counties to assist in chronic wasting disease surveillance in the deer herd this fall.
“In the fall of 2012 CWD was discovered for the first time in three wild white-tailed deer in Adams, Juneau and Portage Counties” said DNR Wildlife Biologist Josh Karow. “To better define the geographic extend of CWD, we began focusing additional surveillance during the 2013 fall deer seasons within a 10-mile radius of where we found the three positive animals in 2012.”
As a result, an additional five CWD-positive wild deer were discovered in Central Wisconsin, three in Portage County and two in Adams County.
The Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection reported the discovery of a CWD positive deer harvested from a captive cervid facility in Marathon County in December of 2013.
DNR continues to expand CWD surveillance in this area. Hunters can assist with surveillance efforts by having any adult deer harvested within the 10-mile focus areas in Central Wisconsin tested for CWD.
Hunters can examine these focus areas by going to the DNR website and enter cwd sampling in the key word search. A map of the Central Wisconsin CWD Surveillance Areas can be found on that web page.
