Deer Management Units

The information displayed on the map is meant to be a quick, interpretive list of the common questions hunters have about the deer season in each DMU. In addition please note that there are carcass movement restrictions in place for CWD-affected counties. The movement of deer carcasses could be a key pathway in the spread of CWD if the CWD positive carcasses are not disposed of properly. View the carcass movement recommendations for more information.
