Wisconsin DNR does testing each year in Wisconsin. They cut the head off a doe I got a couple years ago and tested it and sent back the results. I also think there are several other independent agencies that do also.

Obviously alot falls on the hunter. Be sure that the animal appears healthy.
Any unsteadiness, odd behavior, and obvious malnutrition would indicate an acutely distressed animal.
Be cautious of materials such as spinal fluid and cord as well as brain matter. Those areas are where the disease takes hold.

So wear some gloves if your sawing off a head or horns for a mount.
