Just checked the cam in the corner of my yard. I have 4 or 5 pics of a doe with tongue swollen hanging out of her mouth. Not sure if itís EHD but it looks like it.   Iím retarded and canít figure out how to post the pic.

Seems I'm late posting. Heck I talked to DEC today about touching the deer. He never said anything about this kind of numbers.

I havenít found any dead deer personally, but driving by some areas close to where I live and hunt I have smelled dead animal quite a bit. I hope it doesnít continue on for too much longer and stays away from some of the places I hunt. Very unfortunate, but not much we can do about it. Letís just all hope for rain and a good frost!

Yup, frost is about all we can hope for. Good idea for hunters to make a quick run through water sources before the season. Goshen, to cold spring,  then up to fishkill, is where it seems heaviest to me. It seems mostly south of 84, but I know Walden and wallkill also have it, but donít know the extent.

That frost would be great.

Found this one today. Looks old, but is from this year. It still had some velvet on one of its tines. Died Mid August if had to guess

Found 10-15 dead ones this weekend in Orange County not far from Stewart, only checked half the water holes on a 100 acre piece, wouldn't be surprised if there are 30-40 dead on this piece easy. Some I could smell and didn't bother looking for in the thick brush. Saw one 8pt hobbling around with that gut shot look. Then I talked to guy from Putnam who found 40-50 on a few parcels past few weeks.

Fostertown Road buck. Found a doe decaying near a old pump station just up the stream from this guy. Maggots in the water gave her away. Did kick up a sleeping doe seemed wobbly on her feet.

Report all the ones you come across to the DEC. Theres nothing they can do, but I think theyíre just Now grasping the severity of the situation. Hopefully next year theyíll take it easy on the DMPís because areas are going to need the herd rebuilt.
