MADISON — An updated interactive chronic wasting disease mapping application is available on the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources website. This application allows a user to look at numbers of deer tested statewide for CWD and those that tested positive.

Users have the ability to look at the sampling data by DMU, County or township. By clicking on an area they can find the exact number of deer sampled and that tested positive in the area of interest. They can find a location such as a city or coordinates and jump to it on the map. A hunter may be interested in how close the nearest positive is to his/her hunting area and can use a measuring tool to find the distance. There are drawing tools available for the user to create a personalized map.

This application is a great way for hunters, landowners and all others interested to keep up to date with CWD sampling and testing in their local area as well as the entire state.

To reach the application, search the DNR website, for CWD prevalence."
