The article offers information on a study which evaluated support for chronic wasting disease (CWD) management among landowners and non-hunting residents in Illinois. A brief description of the research methodology is offered. The findings showed that respondents from the public sample were less like to be aware of CWD than hunters, and only 55% of hunters were aware that a special CWD deer hunting season had been added to boost recreational harvest in the affected area. The implications of the research findings are elaborated.
