Montana Fish Wildlife and Parks have outlined three management areas. These are areas where hunters must submit samples of the deer, elk, and moose that they kill.

On their website FWP says:

“To prevent the spread of CWD from infected areas of Montana to other parts of the state, the whole carcass, whole head, brain, or spinal column from any deer, elk, or moose harvested within a CWD Management Zone may not be removed from that Management Zone unless the animal has tested negative for CWD.
