Acknowledging Maryland Deer Processors

The Department of Natural Resources extends gratitude to the dedicated deer processors who play a pivotal role in the Wildlife and Heritage Service's data collection initiative aimed at understanding Maryland's deer populations. The processor's cooperation significantly contributes to the accumulation of vital statistics that are crucial in the strategic management and conservation of this cherished species.

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) Approved Processors

Among these esteemed processors, those marked with ◆ are recognized as approved handlers in relation to Chronic Wasting Disease. These processors adhere to specific guidelines ensuring safer handling and processing of deer in the context of CWD. The Department maintains and routinely updates a list of these approved processors, reflecting the ongoing efforts to mitigate CWD risks.

Resources and Processor Information

For the most current information on deer processors, including those approved for CWD handling, hunters and the general public can refer to the Department's website. The comprehensive list is made readily accessible at CWD in Maryland page. This resource is valuable for hunters needing processing services and for those interested in CWD monitoring efforts in the state.
