Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD)


CWD Video Series

Chronic wasting disease (CWD) has infected free-ranging deer in 43% of states and provinces in the United States and Canada. In the 50-plus years since CWD was first found in North American deer, we have learned a lot of ways for managers and hunters to manage this disease. New research results continue to inform management modifications. We developed these educational videos to help hunters and landowners better understand CWD and the resulting “new normal” of deer management.
