DNR confirms CWD detected in Shawano County
The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources (DNR) confirms a wild deer tested positive for chronic wasting disease (CWD) in the Town of Germania in southwestern Shawano County, within 10 miles of Waupaca County. As required by state law, the DNR will renew the baiting and feeding bans in Shawano and Waupaca counties.

The CWD-positive deer was an adult doe harvested during the 2020 gun deer season and was tested as part of the department's disease surveillance efforts. This is the first wild deer detection in Shawano County.

Plan Ahead! Expect Shipping Delays!
Due to COVID-19 safety precautions affecting the production of tags, as well as slower shipping times with all carriers, there may be a delay in fulfilling and shipping your tag order. Please plan to add an additional 10 to 15 days to produce and ship your order – which means orders could take up to 25 days from the date ordered for delivery with standard shipping. (Under normal circumstances, it takes about 10 to 15 days to receive your order.)

We encourage you to plan ahead and allow for the additional shipping times. Please reach out to the WLIC Team if you have any questions or concerns.
