Chronic Wasting Disease Zones

— As more deer in the Mid-Atlantic region are confirmed to have chronic wasting disease, states establish or expand special management zones where those animals were found. The dark area of this map shows existing CWD management areas. Most recently, the Pennsylvania Game Commission established a management zone of more than 900 square miles that includes Bedford and Blair counties. Contiguous CWD management zones now extend through four states that include Maryland, West Virginia and Virginia in addition to Pennsylvania. For detailed information about regulations that affect hunting and carcass transportation in each state, check the individual websites (dnr.state.md.us; wvdnr.gov; pgc.state.pa.us; dgif.virginia.gov/).
