Default RE: What is the story with EHD?

Pretty bad event regardless of who is impacted. Our party only found one naturally dead deer which was an 8 point. It looked like it had been dead for a while and might have been an archery kill that wasn't recovered or an EHD deer. We did find 2 bucks that had been shot in the gun season that were left in place and just had the antlers cut off. Both were mature deer and must have had decent racks. I can't imagine how someone could be so much of a slob to do such a thing. Talk about bad sportsmanship and laziness. Irregardless the large scale die off can really hurt an area that loses too many. Some of the locals had videoed a really large Booner class drop tine over the summer that was among the deer that they found near a stream. What a loss.
