ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota deer hunters who plan on hunting in northwestern Wisconsin face new restrictions on bringing venison home.

Wisconsin this year put four northwestern counties in a new chronic wasting disease zone: Barron, Burnett, Polk and Washburn.

The Minnesota Board of Animal Health does not allow whole, field-dressed deer to be brought into Minnesota from these counties. It allows only: cut and wrapped meat, quarters or other portions with no part of the spinal column or head attached; and antlers, hides, teeth, finished taxidermy mounts and antlers attached to skull caps that are cleaned of all brain tissue.

Deer harvested in several southern Wisconsin counties designated earlier as a chronic wasting disease zone are subject to the same restrictions.

Wisconsin’s archery deer season opens Saturday. Its firearms season opens Nov. 17.
