CWD Sample Collector Training

CWD Sample Collector Training in Texas Panhandle and Trans-Pecos

The Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Texas Animal Health Commission, and Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will coordinate chronic wasting disease postmortem sample collector training in the Panhandle and Trans-Pecos.

Sign up as soon as possible. Upcoming training classes scheduled:

• Amarillo: AgriLife Extension Building, 6500 W Amarillo Blvd 9 AM – 12 PM on Sept 26

• Van Horn: Van Horn Convention Center, 1801 W Broadway St 9 AM – 12 PM on Nov 18

Landowner-managers, taxidermists, and veterinarians can have training to collect tissues for disease testing under TAHC’s Certified CWD Postmortem Sample Collector program. This will be a classroom format as well as hands-on training.

Trained individuals can sample harvested CWD susceptible species such as white-tailed deer, mule deer, elk, red deer, sika, etc. on their properties. They can also sample harvested CWD susceptible species for other hunters, and provide those samples to TPWD for testing to meet mandatory testing requirements in the Panhandle and Trans-Pecos CWD Zones.

Individuals who participated last year must also attend this year’s training to receive necessary check station supplies. Space is limited to the first 50 participants for each training. Registration is mandatory to attend.

Please contact Laura Leal with TAHC at (512) 650-0475 or [email protected] to sign up.
