Check stations critical to game management

THURSDAY, SEPT. 17, 2009

Check stations will be open for northeastern Washington deer hunters during two weekends at Chattaroy and four weekends at the Deer Park truck scale.

Hunters should stop “so we can collect data for better management that maximizes hunter opportunity,” said state wildlife biologist Dana Base. “The check stations are a chance to hear from the hunters about field conditions.

“Also, we pull lymph nodes to continue monitoring for chronic wasting disease.”
