Chronic Wasting Disease is a neurological disease that affects members of the cervid family (deer, elk, moose, and reindeer/caribou). Like mad cow disease in cattle, scrapie in sheep and goats and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (CJD) in humans, it's caused not by a virus or bacteria, but by abnormal prions, or proteins. Hunters play a vital role in this management action. The Game Commission give hunters expanded opportunities to harvest deer in DMAs. For the 2020-21 hunting seasons, the Pennsylvania Game Commission is offering Deer Management Assistance Program (DMAP) permits for eight Enhanced Surveillance Units. The permits allow hunters to take antlerless deer during the 2020-21 hunting seasons. They went on sale on July 30. This map shows the CWD Disease Management Area and the Deer Management Assistance Program areas.
