SAGINAW COUNTY, MI (WNEM) -

After you bag your buck, head to Cabela’s DNR check station.

The Cabela’s Saginaw Store, at 5202 Bay Road in Saginaw will be open Nov 16-20 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. to get your deer checked.

Hunters will get a deer cooperator patch in exchange for checking in your catch. A deer head (antlers must still be attached on bucks) or the entire carcass must be presented to get the patch.

The DNR is encouraging hunters to submit deer heads for testing to help determine the extent of diseases like chronic wasting disease and bovine tuberculosis.

The Cabela’s in Dundee and Grandville will also have check-in stations at various times and dates.
