    So I submitted a deer for testing around November 10. I brought it to the taxidermist and he submitted the lymph nodes. They seem to have lost it. Now I can’t get a hold of the DNR lab. I deboned all the meat and had a processor turn it into burger. Anyone else have trouble getting a hold of them? What would you do?

    You haven't been able to talk with Hanna at the lab ? Do you have both the CWD tear off with # or just your drivers license # ? Helps to have both.
    I've called several times and talked with the gal. Submitted 1 on the 17th that is not showing up. The lady is trying to help, but nothing so far. All of our others, no problem.
    Can't understand why you haven't talked with anyone if you are calling during business hours.

    Fry some onions and butter in a pan and toss in the venison after about 10 minutes?

    How confident are you that the taxi submitted them or at least submitted them with the correct paperwork ?
    Again, do you have the CWD tear-off number ?

    That’s one thing I am worried. I believe he submitted them as he told me the person he submitted them too was not very knowledgeable. They were submitted at a drop box with a dnr person present. He said of the 5 he submitted none have heard back. I’m guessing paperwork issue. Why can’t they test the meat? If it’s found in the lymphatic system should be in the meat?

    No, thank god that is not correct.

    Not liking the sound of 0 for 5. Something doesn't smell right.
