CWD Collection Zones

CWD Sampling areas in Kansas for free testing for the 2020-2021 season include: The Northcentral Zone and the CWD Study Area (Everything except the Northcentral Zone).

The sample size of 458 samples has been attained in the Northcentral Zone.

If you harvest a deer in the Northcentral Zone and want it tested for CWD, call 620-402-4195. This is the CWD Study Hotline and this study will coordinate the testing of Northcentral deer through Missouri Medical Diagnostic Lab for the rest of the 2020-2021 deer season. CWD testing is not food safety testing.

Deer meat should be frozen at least 30 days before making jerky.

If a hunter requires or wants a faster result, they can privately submit samples to the K-State Veterinary Diagnostic Lab (KSVDL) and pay the $28.28 testing fee plus the shipping fee. Hunters wishing to submit samples privately can call the KSVDL at 785-532-5650 for details and setting up an account.

FROM 28 DEC. 2020 THROUGH JANUARY 2021, ALL HUNTER-HARVESTED SAMPLES FROM THE NORTHCENTRAL ZONE WILL BE TESTED AT THE MISSOURI MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC LAB (MMDL) VIA THE CWD STUDY PROJECT. CALL 620-402-4195 TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS TO HAVE YOUR DEER TESTED FOR CWD AT MMDL.

A completed data card is required to get free testing. Sampling goals during this study are set at 450 samples per DMU (Deer Management Unit).

Hunters can take the head of their deer to one of the collectors listed below, drop deer head off at one of the barrel collection locations below OR make arrangements with a KDWPT Wildlife Biologist to have their deer sampled. The deer will be sampled (RPLN tissue) and a data card will be filled out. Location of harvest information is very important for the spatial modelling of this project. The deer cannot be tested for free without having an accurate location of the harvest. Hunting locations are never divulged to the public.

Samples will be gathered up faster in this study than the normal routine surveillance, and samples will be tested at the Missouri University Medical Diagnostic Center. Seasonal employees will augment collection by being available to meet hunters and sample their deer, if the hunters can bring it to the BLUE AREA (see map above). Seasonals won’t have the funding to travel outside the BLUE AREA. The CWD Study mobile phone number is 620-402-4195. The CWD Study email is kscwdsurveillance@gmail.com     Hunters who harvest a deer can call the number or send an email to set up a place to meet a seasonal and have their deer sampled.

AS OF 28 DECEMBER 2020, FREE CWD TESTING IS NOW ONLY AVAILABLE AT MISSOURI MEDICAL DIAGNOSTIC LAB (MMDL) VIA THE CWD STUDY. CALL 620-402-4195 TO MAKE ARRANGEMENTS FOR TESTING.
