Minnesota DNR to keep special hunters to fight CWD

Twelve new CWD cases were confirmed wildly this autumn. There have been 30 past three years, all in southeast Minnesota. To participate in a special game, hunters must follow a set of rules . All hunting will take place around the designated CWD zone in Fillmore County. Hunters and landowners are asked to kill as many deer as possible.

Deer hunters can buy an unlimited number of licenses for $ 2.50 each. Earth owners can deceive and In January, USDA shooters are hired to kill deer. DNR Estimates that the shooters cost about 200,000 dollars.

“This is really a drastic thing,” said John Zanmiller, a member of the Bluff Land Whitetails Association. “You know that some people have called this core choice option. That’s not something we want to see.”

According to Zanmiller, a majority of the pursuit will take place in private land.

“First of all, make sure you have permission and make sure you live in this country,” said Zanmiller.

Each deer must be tested for CWD. DNR staff will test four harvesting stations. Whole deer can not leave the zone until the test result returns.

Much of the game will be given away. Hunters can register via the DNR “Dela Harvest” program.

At the same time, Oak Meadow Meats on is ready for more willingness to process.

We expect to see more wildlife coming later this year than usual, says owner Michael Aggen. “We’re likely to go to March or April.”

This is the third time DNR has had special deer in southeastern Minnesota. During the last two years, 1 249 deer were killed during the hunt.
