Kaibab Archery Deer Hunters Now Have Mandatory Check-out
Successful Kaibab archery
deer hunters now have mandatory check out at the Jacob Lake Check
Station and must have an archery deer stamp affixed to their licenses.
This year there is also something else new – Arizona Game and Fish
Department biologists will be collecting tissue samples from deer
harvested on the Kaibab to test for chronic wasting disease as part of
the state’s early-detection program.
Chronic wasting disease, which most people call CWD, is not currently
found in Arizona. It has been discovered in the adjoining states of
Colorado, New Mexico and Utah. Once contracted, it is 100-percent
fatal to deer and elk.
“We are collecting tissue samples from deer harvested in various areas
of the state as part of an early-detection program here,” says Shelli
Dubay, a Game and Fish Department biologist.
