With the opening of the Firearm Deer Season in Missouri on Saturday, the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reminds hunters that Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) testing for opening weekend this year is optional, not mandatory in the Counties where CWD has been confirmed.
MDC Taney County Agent Chris Boyd on a recent edition of KRZK’s “Conservation Report” said the department decided against the mandatory testing due to COVID-19 concerns however there will be still be locations available to drop off samples for those hunters wishing to do so.
