December deer hunts coming up as part of CWD efforts

Hunters can participate in two special deer hunts to help limit the spread of chronic wasting disease in wild deer in southeastern Minnesota.
Residents and nonresidents can participate in the hunts from Friday, Dec. 20, through Sunday, Dec. 22, and Friday, Dec. 27, through Sunday, Dec. 29, in deer permit areas 643, 646, 647 and 648, which are the only permit areas where the disease has been found to be persistent in wild deer.
Hunters must plan ahead and should check the DNR’s special hunt webpage for complete details about the hunts including hunt rules, CWD sampling locations, carcass movement restrictions and a map of the hunt area.
