3-day Archery Deer Hunt Scheduled For The CRWA Dec. 31 – Jan. 2

Special CWD archery hunt in Cannon River Wilderness Park planned

A special archery hunt to monitor deer in the Cannon River Wilderness Park for chronic wasting disease has been approved by the Rice County Board of Commissioners.

The hunt runs from Dec. 31 to Jan. 2. It’s the second consecutive year that the county has partnered with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to determine whether the disease is present in area deer. Chronic wasting disease affects deer and elk, and damages their brain and nerve tissue.
