Iowa DNR wants deer hunters' help tracking CWD

The Iowa Department of Natural Resources wants to talk to hunters about helping track the spread of Chronic Wasting Disease.  Officials are concerned after five deer harvested in southeast Nebraska last year tested positive for CWD.  The DNR wants hunters in western Iowa especially to work with the department as it increases sampling of deer from Woodbury to Fremont county beginning this fall. To date, 18 deer have tested positive for CWD in northeast Iowa.
