About time. Thank you!
The CWD testing change is a bummer. I like getting mine tested. I’m going to have to figure out a private lab to use. Any ideas?
When do antlerless tags/drawings become available?
Antlerless results available August 31. Leftover antlerless permits on sale September 8.
Agree. We were talking about this yesterday. The past 2 years when the testing has been convenient/free, we tested all of our deer. Now with the Nov. 15-18 window I bet we only will be getting 6-10 tested. Our processor said his location sent in the most heads to Lansing for testing in 2018(not sure about last year) and he usually closes his operation Nov. 16-17 to get caught up from the 15th rush of deer. A lot less CWD deer this year.

Boy they sure take their time getting them published. So much for early planning on hunts when you don't know for sure what the regs are. Can't wait to get my hands on one of those gems.
Less visibility to CWD+ deer doesn't mean fewer CWD+ deer...
I'm sure it'll boost the narrative of success for the experiment. No data, no CWD. No data, no FOIA. No data, no NRC pulling the plug. Talk about a complete sham.
Worse still is the complete disregard for hunter and family health. Nothing has changed in the health recommendations other than DNR downplaying them. No other state has denied core zone hunters accessible, free of charge, CWD testing... Not Wisconsin, or Pennsylvania, or Virginia, or Minnesota, or Missouri, or Illinois, or Iowa, or Tennessee, or Mississippi, or Arkansas, or Texas, or Wyoming, or Colorado,…. Even when funding was limited, other states still chose to support testing to ensure continued hunting in CWD zones and protect hunter health as a priority.
lol. Yep, reminds of the guy a month or 2 ago that didn't want to test for Covid because less positives would mean less disease.

The DNR said that they wanted to make regulations easier and clearer. I fail to see how 66 pages of digest does that.
How much of that 66 pages is Dunhams ads?
The ad pages were not numbered.
Agreed. I couldn't believe it when I read that part of the digest. I live and hunt primarily in Newaygo County, and it is still in the "Core CWD Area" but they won't be testing any deer from our county?? What? We have townships directly bordering our county with positives, but if we never test then that means Newaygo County will just be CWD free forever right. Unreal.
They still haven't delivered the bard copies to license dealers yet.
