Okay guys and gals, this is lengthy but its info you all need to read if you are planning an out of state hunt. Its the newest info on CWD and NC requirements. If you don't follow these guidelines you are in federal violation. I've already had one guy bring a mule deer in and he didn't have his stuff together. He had to GO!!! I'm not a getting a ticket for his screw up.
Heres what page 4 of the requirements guide says:
Cervid Carcass Parts Only the following deer, elk or moose
carcass parts harvested in states or provinces with Chronic
Wasting Disease (CWD) will be allowed in North Carolina:
- meat that is cut and wrapped;
- quarters or other portions of meat with no part of the spinal
column or head attached;
- meat that has been boned out;
- caped hides;
- cleaned skull plates;
- cleaned teeth;
- finished taxidermy products
These parts or their containers must be labeled with the hunter’s
name and address; state or province of origin; date the animal
was killed; the hunter’s hunting license number; and the
destination of the parts or containters.
A current map of CWD-infected states and provinces is available at:

Game Management Units, Wildlife Management Zones and Counties where CWD has been Detected in Wild Populations
The number one objective in the management of CWD is to prevent its spread into new areas. One theoretical mode of disease transmission is via infected carcasses. Therefore, in an effort to minimize the risk of disease spread, a number of states have adopted regulations affecting the transportation of hunter-harvested deer and elk.
Some states have restricted the importation of whole deer and elk carcasses from areas where CWD has been detected in the wild. The following information is provided to advise hunters which areas may be subject to Carcass Transportation Regulations.
The following game management units (GMU's), equivalent wildlife management units, or counties have had wild deer or elk diagnosed with CWD. Click on state name to view a CWD distribution map for that state (NOTE: maps not available for all states). A U.S. map of CWD distribution in wild deer and elk is provided at the bottom of this page.
