Hunters can request a kit online or, in most instances, visit a local wildlife office to pick one up. Kits are provided on a first-come, first-served basis.
Hunters may also use kits obtained in a previous year.
The kit and testing is free. Test results will be available online.
Mailings will continue throughout deer season until the supply runs out. Hunters should expect their kit to arrive within seven days of their online request.
Use our list of area wildlife offices to obtain a kit.
Hunters in any CWD zone who use this kit to meet the mandatory testing requirement Nov. 4-5 must obtain their kits before hunting.
Samples must be postmarked within 72 hours of harvest.
