CWD partner sampling program

The DNR is partnering with taxidermists across Minnesota to collect samples. These partners will remove a lymph node sample and submit it to the DNR.

Testing is free but partners may charge fees for their services. Contact partners before your hunt for details and to arrange services.

If you are hunting in a deer permit area designated as a management or control zone, your options will be limited. Many partners only serve DPAs without carcass movement restrictions. Search "DPA" to list only those partners.

Test results submitted by partners will be available online.
