Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks will continue chronic wasting disease surveillance this year in high-priority areas known as priority surveillance areas in northwest, southwest and eastern Montana.
Hunters who harvest a deer, elk or moose in these areas are asked to voluntarily submit their animal for sampling to help gather additional data for that area. This information will be used to help inform the best management strategies for the affected hunting districts.
This year, FWP will not have transportation restriction zones or CWD management zones.
