There are laws in place restricting the importation of both live and
harvested cervids (including, but not limited to deer, elk, reindeer,
and moose).  Importation into Kentucky of live cervids is prohibited
by statute (KRS 150.725, 150.730, 150.735, and 150.740) and is a
Class D felony.  Whole carcasses of deer or elk harvested in
CWD-positive states may not come into (or pass through) Kentucky.  
The brain and spinal column must be removed before the harvested
animal may cross the border.
