CWD Test Options/Results
Chronic Wasting Disease

The AGFC offers many avenues for hunters to have their deer or elk tested. All elk harvested in Arkansas must be submitted for a CWD test. Submitting samples for CWD from deer is voluntary, but highly encouraged by the AGFC and the Centers for Disease Control.

  • Taxidermists Who Test for CWD

    Taxidermists are hunters too, and many do not work regular hours at their place of business. For this reason, participating taxidermists require prior notice before a deer is brought in for testing.
