Dear Montana Hunters,
Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks needs your help in managing and monitoring Chronic Wasting Disease. CWD is a deadly disease of deer, elk, and moose that we now know is present along the Hi-Line mostly north of Highway 2, in southern Montana south of Billings, Yellowstone County, within a half mile of our southeast border near Decker, and in Libby. To manage CWD in 2019, FWP has designated specific CWD Management Zones where CWD is known to exist and Sampling Areas where FWP will sample hunter-harvested animals to look for new infections.
NOTE: A map of current CWD Management Zones, where CWD is known to exist, is available online at fwp.mt.gov/cwd. This map will be updated every Wednesday at noon throughout the hunting season.
Please read the attached letter for more information on how you can help fight Chronic Wasting Disease in Montana.
