How are you notified? email or text? It would be nice if you could see on Alberta Relm that it's at least being processed.

I managed to email someone about my submission from Nov 6. This is the reply I got:


Test results for heads submitted after 1st week of November, will take anywhere from 8-12 weeks - due to high volume of heads we have been receiving. Each week we have been getting ~2500 heads and it takes about a month to test 2500 heads.. Also, please check your spam folder for any news on the results.

Curious how long others have waited.
Yup still waiting. Submitted around Nov 9th and still waiting.

I appreciate they get inundated with submissions but since they're requesting it, they should be able to cope with demand in a timely basis

Default CWD testing wait time?

I killed 2 MD bucks in Wainwright this year and my hunting partner did the same, samples were pulled by the biologists at the same time. He got his results back a couple weeks ago and I havenít seen mine yet. Thought that was odd but I donít know how the system works.

Dropped off at the Edmonton North Cabelas on Nov 28th, still no results. They emailed me on Feb 4th asking to confirm it was a buck; I guess the tag was damaged.

Glad to hear results are still trickling in, and that they do have my sample and my contact info.

I agree. Don't make mandatory if not able to provide timely results.

This kind of wait time is ridiculous. I would be raising Holly Hobb with Nixon and my MLA.
