Vermont's CWD importation regulations currently apply to hunters bringing in deer or elk carcasses from the following states and provinces:
Alberta, Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Maryland, Michigan,
Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, New
York, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Saskatchewan, South Dakota, Texas, Utah,
Virginia, West Virginia, Wisconsin, Wyoming.
"CWD is a very persistent disease that can resurface after years of absence," said Adam Murkowski, Vermont's deer project leader. "Vermont's CWD regulation is designed to help prevent CWD from infecting Vermont's deer and the drastic de-population measures that would be required if it appears here."
"Hunters bringing deer or elk from any of the CWD-listed states or provinces into or through Vermont simply have to get them processed according to the regulation before doing so."
A fine of up to $1,000 and loss of hunting and fishing licenses for one year are applicable for each deer or elk imported illegally.
