CWD Surveillance Program

Attention hunters! You can earn a ‘Limited Edition 2017 Ontario 150 CWD Surveillance Program Crest’ by taking part in the annual testing for chronic wasting disease in deer. Scientists will be testing deer harvested in Wildlife Management Units 64A, 64B, 65, 66A, 66B, 67, 69A-2, 69A-3, and 69B.

How can you participate?

Option 1: Drop off your deer’s head at a MNRF freezer within a few days of harvest.

Option 2: Give our roving technicians a small tissue sample from the head of your deer.
