CNB Hunting/Fishing N.J. : Guidance to Residents Who Hunt Big Game in States With CWD

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) has been found in free-ranging and captive white-tailed deer in Pennsylvania since 2012, and has been confirmed in numerous other states and Canadian provinces. The NJDEP Division of Fish and Wildlife is therefore advising New Jersey residents who hunt out-of-state to know where CWD is present and what steps should be taken prevent introducing it into New Jersey.

To date, the following states and Canadian provinces have reported CWD in captive or wild deer, elk or moose:

Alberta

New Mexico

Oklahoma

Michigan

Arkansas

Saskatchewan

Texas

Minnesota

New York

 

Montana

North Dakota

Iowa

Pennsylvania

 

Wyoming

South Dakota

Missouri

West Virginia

 

Utah

Nebraska

Wisconsin

Virginia

 

Colorado

Kansas

Illinois

Maryland

 

Many of the states listed above restrict the movement of deer parts out of areas where CWD is present. In such cases, it is also illegal to bring those deer, elk or moose parts into New Jersey. It is safe and legal to bring the following deer parts to New Jersey from areas where CWD is present:

  • Meat that is cut and wrapped (either commercially or privately).
  • Quarters or other portions of meat to which no part of the spinal column is attached.
  • Meat that has been deboned.
  • Hides with no heads attached.
  • Finished taxidermy heads.
  • Antlers with no tissue attached.
  • Clean skull plates with no lymphoid or brain tissue attached.
  • Clean skulls with no lymphoid or brain tissue attached.
  • Upper canine teeth (also known as buglers, whistlers or ivories).
