CWD mail-in testing kits

Out of stock for 2022. Click the "I wanted a kit" button to help us plan for kits next year if the program continues.

Some area wildlife offices may still have kits, but be sure to check first. Hunters can still submit samples through our Partner Sampling Program.

Kits were provided on a first-come, first-served basis. The kit and testing are free. Test results will be available online.

Hunters in any CWD zone who use this kit to meet the mandatory testing requirement Nov. 5-6 must obtain their kits before hunting. Samples must be postmarked within 72 hours of harvest.

Each kit requires that hunters remove a lymph node sample from a harvested deer. We've created an instructional video so you can successfully extract a sample.

Kits include:

  • Tyvek envelope with prepaid return label
  • Pair of large nitrile gloves
  • Sample collection and submission instructions
  • Datasheet or instructions to submit data online
  • Pre-labled sample bag
  • Resealable bag
  • Tweezers
  • Freezable cold pack
  • Silver padded mailer
