Oregon’s Fish and Wildlife Commission last week adopted a permanent rule that aims to prevent the importation of chronic wasting disease to Oregon.

Hunters bringing meat back from states with CWD and cannot import any portion of the head or spinal column unless it has been cleaned of all meat and brain tissue.

Allowed carcass parts include: cut and wrapped meat, quarters or other portions without the spinal column or head, boned out meat, hides and/or capes without head, skull plates with antlers attached and no tissue attached, upper canine teeth and finished taxidermy heads.
