Where can I take the deer I harvested in a Disease Management Area (DMA)?

The map in the link above shows locations of Cooperating Processors and Taxidermists to whom you can take a deer harvested within the associated DMA. You cannot take a deer from one DMA to a cooperator for a different DMA. Example: If you harvest a deer in DMA 3, you cannot take it to a cooperating processor in DMA 4. The map also shows locations of High-risk Parts Dumpsters, and Deer Head Collection bins. Information is updated regularly.
