GFP Commission Requires Checks for Deer Harvested in Custer State Park





PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) Commission requires Custer State Park deer hunters to submit samples of their harvested deer to be tested for Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD); effective this fall.

Similar to the current requirement for harvested elk in Custer State Park, test results will be used for determining a random prevalence rate of CWD for deer within the park. To learn more about CWD and its known presence in South Dakota, visit https://gfp.sd.gov/wildlife-disease/.
