For the first time, the DNR is piloting a new CWD sampling program for hunters. For faster CWD test results (2-3 weeks), these self-sample collection kits will be available to hunters harvesting dear in Eaton County. Hunters will extract the lymph nodes from the deer and will use the self-sample collection kit to submit the nodes via free overnight UPS shipping to Michigan State University Veterinary Diagnostic Laboratory to receive no-cost CWD testing. Please call the Eaton Conservation District office prior to your visit to ensure that someone is available to assist you.
As in previous years, the DNR has also placed a collection box for deer heads in our parking lot. Instructions are included with the supplies and results for heads left in the box may take up to 8 weeks to receive.
