None of the 1,300 deer tested in and around the chronic wasting disease zone in southeast Minnesota have shown signs of the disease, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.

Hunters have harvested 780 deer so far within the zone, which stretches from Wanamingo, Zumbrota and Zumbro Falls to Kasson, Byron and Rochester. Negative results have been returned for 638 deer. In the areas adjacent to the zone, 671 of 1,053 deer harvested have tested negative.

“Collections are going well and hunters are very cooperative,” said DNR wildlife research manager Lou Cornicelli in a statement. He said the DNR will continue checking stations until Nov. 27.

All hunters who harvest deer within the management zone must register their deer in person at check stations located throughout the area.
