Hunters who harvest a deer in the CWDMA may transport ‘leg quarters’ outside the CWDMA. Leg quarters may include the bones, meat and hide of the legs, but no portion of the spinal column may be attached. This provision is intended to accommodate hunters in the field complying with the CWD regulations that require avoidance of the high risk portions of the carcass.
