Final Results of CWD Samples from Missouri Department of Conservation

On December 19, 2016 Capitol Outdoors passed along the Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) results for the mandatory Chronic Wasting Disease samplings.  As we know CWD does not stop along our state borders.  The Illinois Department of Natural Resources spent over $1 million dollars last year to track this disease.  Regardless, if you're a deer hunter or not, here at Capitol Outdoors we feel that it's imperative that all outdoorsmen and women are aware of this deadly and contagious disease.

The MDC released their second findings from their samplings.

MDC reports three new cases of CWD from mandatory sampling

As part of MDC’s mandatory CWD sampling efforts, MDC staff remove lymph nodes for CWD testing from the neck of a buck harvested in central Missouri the opening weekend of fall firearms deer season.

Final results from 19,200+ deer tested show total of five cases of chronic wasting disease.

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. – The Missouri Department of Conservation (MDC) reports it has received final results from the more than 19,200 tissue samples tested for chronic wasting disease (CWD) following the Department’s mandatory sampling of deer harvested on Nov. 12 and 13 in 29 counties in northeast, central, and east-central Missouri in and around where the disease has been found.

CWD Test Results are in for Two Missouri Counties

CWD Test Results are in for Two Missouri Counties

When you hear of chronic wasting disease (CWD) you might think of Northern Illinois or Wisconsin.  However this disease continues to spread not only in Illinois but in other states as well.  Not sure how many of our readers hunt Missouri but when it comes to CWD every hunter, angler and outdoor person should be aware of the impacts and spread of this disease.
