DNR Would Like 450 Deer Heads Here To Check On CWD
The DNR is hoping for a large hunter response to check on the prevalance of Chronic Wasting Disease in Lincoln, Forest and Oneida counties. Deer will be sampled in northern Lincoln, northern Langlade and southern Oneida counties and Forest county after the detection of CWD in two wild deer along the Oneida/Lincoln county line.
Deer in eastern Oneida, southern Vilas and western Forest counties will continue to be sampled after a positive CWD-diagnosis on a captive deer farm in Three Lakes.

More information is on the DNR website by putting CWD in the search box.
