Fish, Wildlife and Parks biologists Scott Hemmer explains how to remove lymph nodes from a deer during a public forum regarding chronic wasting disease Monday in Havre.

Fish, Wildlife and Parks Region 6 wildlife biologist Scott Hemmer said Monday that during the upcoming hunting season, FWP will once again be testing Region 6 for chronic wasting disease and will have transportation restrictions from Liberty County to the North Dakota border.

Hemmer spoke Monday during a public meeting in The Great Northern Inn to discuss CWD and steps the public and FWP are taking to manage the disease.
