Hunters who shoot deer and elk in Region 6 are being asked to drop off the animal's head to be tested for chronic wasting disease.
Dropoff sites include: Hi-Line Meats, located behind the Crop Production Services outlet off U.S. Highway 2 in Glasgow. (Hi-Line Meats will also collect heads from noncustomers); Treasure Trail Meat Processing, 1064 U.S. Highway 2 West, Glasgow; Kent Morehouse Taxidermy, Highway 24 south of the Milk River outside Glasgow; Summers Taxidermy in Dagmar.
Submission is voluntary, and the heads cannot be returned to hunters. Heads must still have the first vertebrate attached to the skull. Heads with the antlers removed (including skull-capped heads) are acceptable, but animals with damage to the head are not.
Each head must be accompanied with the following information on tags that can be found at the collection sites: Hunter name, ALS number, species, hunting district and the section where the animal was harvested. Submitted heads with any of this information missing will not be tested for CWD.
