We encourage all those concerned about the health of our wildlife resources to come and learn how you can help slow the spread of this potentially devastating wildlife disease. Learn about the disease, how it is spread, established disease management areas (DMAs) and associated regulations regarding the transportation of deer and elk from within these DMAs or from out-of-state as well as management techniques currently being used and other options available to help slow the spread of the disease.
