CWD Information for Hunters

***NEW*** — Interactive CWD Testing Grid Map

We now have an interactive map to assist hunters with location information regarding CWD testing options.  Use this map to determine the appropriate grid number when submitting a head for CWD testing and to find locations of voluntary drop sites and processors approved for CWD sample collection.  Click the link above to access!  For hunters who want deer tested from outside of a DMA, there are also freezers located at the Charles City, Farmville, Forest, and Verona regional offices.  Please note that deer harvested from within DMAs cannot be transported to these freezers for testing.
