Biological testing is mandatory for all Hunters along the Western edge of the Province. The Manitoba government has enacted measures to protect wild elk and deer from disease. By law, hunters must submit biological samples (head, upper neck and lungs) of elk and deer taken in certain Game Hunting Areas to Manitoba Sustainable Development. Samples are checked for any signs of disease. For a complete list of hunting zones, drop off locations and instructions please click here.
