Deer in Spring Landscape

CWD Disease Management Area Established

The Disease Management Area is that portion of Allegany County noted as Private Land Code 233 in the annual Guide to Hunting and Trapping. This section includes Green Ridge State Forest east of Flintstone and Oldtown. The Wildlife and Heritage Service is considering regulations to prohibit the feeding of deer in the CWD Management Area, where the positive case was found. Regulations are also being considered to restrict the movement of hunter-harvested deer parts from the CWD Management Area.
