"For nearly a decade, we have tested hunter-killed deer, and have not found or confirmed any cases of CWD-infected deer in Pennsylvania," said Carl G. Roe, Game Commission executive director. "We are planning to collect samples from about 4,000 hunter-killed deer to test for CWD in the upcoming firearms deer season. Last year, we tested samples from 3,882 deer. CWD was not detected in any of the samples."
