Precautionary sampling results

You can view results from all areas tested for CWD. Results will be updated on weekdays as they become available.

Outside of deer permit area 603, hunters will not be notified of their test result unless their deer tests presumptive positive for CWD.

Mandatory CWD testing continues in southeast Minnesota's disease management zone during the 3B season and is encouraged for hunters in the deer permit areas surrounding area 603.

Carcasses still can't be moved from area 603 unless a negative CWD test is received. Hunters in 603 can check their results online.

DNR encourages hunters in permit areas 343, 345, 346, 347, 348 and 349 to have deer harvested during the 3B season voluntarily tested at one of the 603 sampling stations. Carcass movement restrictions do not apply to these hunters.

CWD information can change rapidly. Please check back regularly for important updates.
