CWD Spreading in North Carolina

Chronic Wasting Disease (CWD) is an always fatal neurologic disease caused by an environmentally resilient, infectious protein called a prion that infects both farmed and free-ranging cervids. While CWD was first detected in western cervid populations, it is rapidly moving eastward and currently has been detected in 31 states and has the potential to significantly impact the time-honored tradition of deer hunting in North Carolina.

"There is no better way to help assure the strength of CSF and future opportunities for hunters and anglers."

NASCAR Hall of Famer and CSF Board Chairman Richard Childress joined the CSF Board of Directors to bring the same level of enthusiasm and dedication he brings to racing to ensuring the rights of hunters and anglers. Childress, an avid outdoorsman, is as passionate about giving back as he is about hunting and fishing. To keep supporting CSF well into the future, Mr. Childress became a CSF Heritage Fund Donor. Please follow this link to learn more about Mr. Childress' story and how you too can provide a voice for America's sportsmen and women via planned giving.
