    Can anyone confirm that all elk harvested in Michigan this year are being tested for CWD?

    They test them for TB. But I haven't heard of them checking for CWD

    They test them for both CWD and TB. Have been for years. It's mandatory that all the heads are shipped to Lansing.

    I was curious about elk test results so I just checked my 2016 lab results. TB results are there but no CWD Test Results listed.
