I remember seeing something about the TPWD wanting hunters to submit their deer heads for testing of Chronic Wasting Disease. Where and how are they to be submitted? My dad got an 8 pt this morning and we are trying to find out about submitting it. Im guessing we can just cut the antlers off at the skull and submit the head. Any info would be appreciated.

There's a guy named "flounder" on here. Ask him. He knows everything there is to know about CWD.

Put the head on ice until you find someone to take the sample. Do not freeze the head.

Hunters asked to submit deer samples for CWD testing

October 3, 2015 by kbradley

Hunters wishing to submit samples can go online to find their local TPWD biologist, listed by county at http://tpwd.texas.gov/landwater/land/technical_guidance/biologists/ . The biologist will provide a sample receipt hunters can use to track test results online. TPWD anticipates test results could take 3-4 weeks to process. In some cases, biologists may request to retain the entire deer head for later sample collection; a resource document will be given to the hunter as proof of sex in those instances.

More information about CWD, including safe carcass handling tips and precautions, can be found online at http://tpwd.texas.gov/huntwild/wild/diseases/cwd/ .
