Kaufman County Deer Hunters Required to Test Harvested Game

As deer season approaches, Kaufman County hunters need to be aware of a new requirement. Because of the neurological disease in deer found in this region of Texas called Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD), hunters who harvest mule deer, whitetailed deer, elk, red deer, or other CWD susceptible species within the Trans-Pecos, Panhandle, and South-Central Texas CWD Containment and Surveillance Zones are REQUIRED to bring their animals to a Texas Parks and Wildlife Department (TPWD) check station within 48 hours of harvest. There will be two check stations for Hunt/Kaufman/Rockwall/ Van Zandt Counties. Dates, times, and locations are listed below.

Let the Journey Begin

Delta Kappa Gamma’s Kaufman County Chapter, Alpha Tau, uses this year’s theme (Journey—which way will you go?) when planning for the year. On September 14, a planning meeting was held at the Kaufman County Library. Members signed up for committees, decided upon goals, and discussed and planned programs and projects. They also socialized at the beginning, using a back-toschool theme meal and mimicking students eating in the cafeteria with sack lunches. During this meeting, members were recognized for their years of service—Jerri Coates for 20 years and Nancy Shaw for 30 years.
