(Note: After this story has been released, the DNR has sent an extended list of licensing sites. The DNR press release is below the story).
Hunters receive a special opportunity in the Oneida and Lincoln counties after the DNR has announced special hunting licenses since Thursday.
Chuck Mccullough, a director of the DNR's natural resources area, said more permits were issued in the CWD counties …
"… This autumn we take CWD dishes in two county districts: one is located in Harrison, Lincoln County, and the other is located in three lakes in Oneida County, will issue permits to monitor public areas in both sampling areas. . "
Mccullough says the permits will be available at the Merrill Ranger station and the Rhinelander service center from Thursday during working hours. Getting deer must be available for CWD sampling, but it says it's the only extraordinary obligation the hunter would have … "
".. The tags are free and they are inherent in property, for example, can only be used for Lincoln County, but not for any other property, must personally pick up and have their ID card with them …"
Mccullough says the permits are valid until the end of the hunt at the beginning of January. Thus, the hunter could use an additional archery permit as long as hunting on the pistol, rolled by a gun during that season, the mouthpiece season or the weapon used for that season.
DNR refers to effort as 'permission to monitor', an effort to obtain a sufficiently high sampling rate in the affected counties to measure the impact of CWD on homeland fowl.
DNR press release: 11/7/2018
SUBJECT: CWD Sampling Opportunities Available for Lincoln, Langlade, Oneida, Forest and Vilas County for 2018 Hunting Season Seasons
MERRILL, Wis – Targeted Chronic Illness Disorder (CWD) will be monitored in two separate areas near Rhinelander this fall.
The deer will be sampled in northern Lincoln, northern Langlade and south of Oneida after the CWD is discovered in two wild deer along the Lincoln-Oneida border. The one in East Oneida, Southern Vilas and the Western Forest County will continue to be sampled as a result of a positive CWD deer on the Oneida Deer Horse Farm, first discovered in 2015.
"The Department of Natural Resources strongly encourages hunters to send heads of adult deer to testing in these areas. It is very important to include adult deer in these areas to determine what is going on with this disease and early detection of infection," said Janet Brehm, biologist DNR wildlife. In addition to voluntary sampling in 2018, DNR staff will offer permission for CWD control to landowners within the wild positive Lincoln / Oneida area, as well as the area around the captured dogs in three lakes.
The CWD monitoring authority will also be available on selected public area parcels in these areas. CWD testing is a condition for adult deer collected by these surveillance licenses. Private landowners should contact the bottom map to determine if your country is in this area. Private land monitoring requirements will be issued only from Rhinelander and Merrill DNR offices.
For Rhinelander, contact Jeremy Holtz at 715-401-2871
For Merrill, contact Carissa Freeh at 608-220-1817 or via e-mail at [email protected]
The public land permit will be available at the Rhinelander DNR Service Center and Merrill DNR Ranger Station stations from 8.30 am to 4.00 pm starting on 8 November. For the authority to supervise public land CWD does not need any obligation.
The goal of DNR was to examine 450 deer within each control area to determine the rate and rate of infection for CWD. Hunters outside these surveillance areas can also test their adult deer at CWD sampling sites. Self-service kiosks are available to any CWD sampler. Simply follow the instructions found on any kiosk, which includes removing the head of a deer (including part of the door) and filling in the data table. Horn removal does not affect the test results.
Submitting a CWD sample is currently available at the following locations for self-service kiosks: DNR Ranger Station, 101 Eagle Dr, Merrill; DNR Lemay Center, 518 W. Somo Ave, Tomahawk; DNR Service Center, 107 Sutliff Ave, Rhinelander; Norling Taxidermy, 6573 Ort Drive, Rhinelander DNR Service Center, 8770 CTY J, Woodruff; Station DNR Ranger, 1861 Hwy 45 N, Eagle River; Three Lakes Station, 1742 Superior St., Three Lakes; Station DNR Ranger, 404 N Lake St., Crandon; Laona Shell Station, 4906 Hwy 8, Laona; The Corner Store, 497 Hwy 8, Armstrong Creek; Fence post, 603 memory strip, fence; DNR Satellite Center, 223 E Steinfest Rd., Antigo; BP Gas Station, N9521 US Hwy 45, Summit Lake; Fisher's Bar, N11209 State Hwy 17, Gleason; Like the following associates, if they bring deer to processing: Geiss Meat Service, W4490 Pope Rd, Merrill; Lake Tomahawk Meat Market, 7259 Hwy 47, Tomahawk Lake; TJ's Butcher Block, 8796 Hwy 51, Minocqua; The first place to choose meat products, 1144 US Hwy 45 S., Eagle River. DNR staff can add additional locations and is currently looking for co-workers to assist with CWD sampling. Visit dnr.wi.gov and search for "CWD sampling" keywords for current sampling locations. For information on CWD test results, search for the "CWD Results" keywords. To see CWD scores for catching potatoes, hunters will have to enter the customer identification number or CWD barcode number. CWD testing is free of charge for a hunter, and the average turnaround time since the deception was taken to the sampling station until results are usually available for two to three weeks.
Self-service packages available at Rhinelander and Antigo DNR Servicing and Satellite Centers CWD Self-Testing Tests are available at the Rhinelander DNR Service Center as well as the Antigo DNR Satellite Center. These sets include all the consumables and instructions required for CWD lymph node sampling horses and pre-paid envelopes for sending samples to the DNR CWD Processing Center. These sets are free and are deployed on first come, first served, while consumables last. If the test results become positive for the CWD, the hunters should follow the advice of the Center for Disease Control so as not to consume the game from that deer.
Sick Relatives reports DNR staff are interested in reporting sick people or foods with an unknown cause of death, but it is important to note that they currently do not investigate feces of killed deer. Contact your local Wildlife DNR biologist to report a sick or dead food or call the DNR official service at 1-800-847-9367.
