NO! DEC specifically says do not eat, but understand that a deer that has EHD usually dies in 8 -36 hours and will most likely be incapacitated near water, so I would say chances of knowing that they are sick would be obvious. And they will also have massive internal bleeding which should be visible when skinned.

I wouldnít eat it. I donít think the virus will hurt humans, but some deer, that somehow manage to survive the first couple days, can go on and apparently have secondary infections, that can be harmful

This one was in my neighbors yard, that I saw couple days before.

YES THEY ARE!!  I believe everybody on this website has heard of Jay Martin he is One of the individuals who got this antler restriction started heís not happy!! he is heavily involved with the Federation we had a Gun Club meeting Tuesday night and he brought it up he would like everybody to contact the D.E.C. and tell them do not do this he has numbers and emails Who to contact he told me he would get hold of Ron and have him put it on the website also.

I can't think of why they would backtrack of a widely successful program.... yes many will voluntarily do QDM antler restrictions but that's also a byproduct of having ample opportunities of better age class deer made possible by Antler restriction laws. You start reducing those larger buck numbers a few years and shoot younger smaller deer we will be back to where we were 10 years ago when basket rack were the norm and not the 2.5 to 3.5 we see now.

Any confirmed cases in northeastern Westchester. Several post back someone mentioned dead deer along Titicus Reservoir. Iím about a mile north of there and found one in my woods today. I knew something was down by the turkey vultures. Plus my trail cameras have recorded abnormally low deer activity.

Should also mention.  I took a walk in the Great Hollow Nature Sanctuary a week or so ago.  Itís just north of Putnam Lake on the Connecticut boarder.  The trail meanders along a stream . I didnít go off trail to investigate but the air was heavy with the smell of rotting carcasses. It had me thinking maybe EHD

Reportedly more than 30 deer have be removed from Sleepy Hollow Lake in Athens/Coxsackie in Greene County... We need some heavy frost!

Doesn't seem like a great idea in 3m as many parts were hit hard by EHD. As usual it will be up to individuals to make the right choices, not a government agency.

They say any deer infected with virus die within 36 hours and they will look very dehydrated an have a serious lag to them. So this is not a disease where the deer could be effected an you not know it and eat the meat.

They have 1C and 3 M listed with those two you said. I heard none for 3M but now I see 3M listed as bowhunting only.. Maybe if you get a extra DMP you can do not use it during Bowhunting?
