North Dakotans hunting deer in Montana this fall should take note of a recently harvested deer that tested positive for chronic wasting disease near Bridger, Mont.
With this development, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department will add Montana to the 2018 CWD proclamation, which restricts movement of animals into North Dakota.
As always, hunters are urged to use caution when processing and handling harvested wild animals.
For more information regarding the developing situation in Montana, hunters should visit the Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks website at fwp.mt.gov.
