Adams County buck tests positive for CWD

State wildlife officials said an Adams County buck has tested positive for chronic wasting disease, signaling the disease has jumped further north out of the southern Wisconsin management zone.

A bow hunter killed the deer south of Lake Arrowhead and east of Petenwell Flowage in the north-central portion of the county on Nov. 7.

Department of Natural Resources officials said the deer was killed nearly 40 miles north of the nearest CWD-positive deer and about 25 miles from Buckhorn Flats, a former captive deer farm that had been infected.

DNR officials said they plan to discuss whether to expand the management zone.
