Successful 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.
