With CWD in sights, deer hunting meets disease prevention

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) is a contagious neurodegenerative disease spreading throughout Minnesota’s whitetail deer population, impacting hunters across the state. Hunters can help mitigate the disease by doing what they do best: hunting.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources’ (DNR) website says reducing the population of deer helps minimize the spread of disease because the fewer the deer, the less deer-to-deer contact. Reducing the amount of contact between deer means reducing the risk of sick deer transmitting CWD to healthy deer.
