Re: transporting meat

I've never heard of that, at least not here in colorado. i know some areas of our state require testing, but i've never heard anything about transporting it. chances are, you're not gonna know if your meat has CWD unless you get it tested so i don't think it matters how you transport it. I would check the other states though just to make sure

transporting meat

there are restrictions if you are a resident of Minnesota and harvested game in some areas of Co.,Wy. Ut.,Wi. and others.http://files.dnr.state.mn.us/natural_resources/animals/mammals/deer/cwd/bah_import_restriction.pdf
there is a map and a listing of requirements on the Minnesota website. (in case your interested and it may effect you)

transporting meat

In California, you can bring in meat from anywhere. However, anything that could have brain or spinal tissue is prohibited. To bring back horns off a freshly killed animal, it must be a clean skull cap. No part of the spine is allowed.

Check your states regulations to be sure.....
