You can track sample results for all areas using the chart below.

If a deer harvested from any area tests presumptive positive for CWD, DNR will directly notify the hunter.

Outside of area 603, there are no carcass movement restrictions and deer should be processed normally.

Collect a lymph node sample for your own private test

Hunters not in a testing area who want to know if their deer is CWD-free can pay to have their own test done by submitting a lymph node sample to the University of Minnesota's Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory.

The lab will do individual testing for a fee. More information is available on the lab's website or by phone at 612-625-8787. The video below shows how to collect a lymph node sample for submission.
