With the late deer season wrapping up, a reminder that there are rules on how to safely bring meat and mounts home if you harvest a deer, moose or elk outside of Washington State. These rules are in effect to prevent the spread of chronic wasting disease (CWD) that can infect wild cervids. CWD is always fatal, there is no cure for it, and over time it can severely reduce cervid populations.
