York -- Hunting season is just around the corner and the Pennsylvania Game Commission is once again taking precautions against a deadly deer disease.

But this year they are testing for Chronic Wasting Disease a little differently.

Last year, deer farms in Adams and York Counties were quarantined after it was detected. 

Chronic Wasting Disease is not believed to affect humans. 

Tuesday night, we learned what hunters this year can expect if they want their deer tested.  The Game Commission says it plans on gathering a thousand samples from areas believed to have CWD instead of testing individual ones.

If you want your deer tested, you'll need to call the Department of Agriculture at (717) 787-4737.  There will be a price, but at this point the cost is unknown.
