When someone asks a question like this I have to suggest thatyou contact bristowboy. He has "seen" it all.

This time of year it's probably EHD, drought years are bad for that and this year is no exception. They may call it "blue tongue" where you live.

I did find it near a river. I surely hope isnt EHD. I live in northern Indiana they havent found it here as of now. I thought maybe calling the DNR.

ehd isnt bluetongue. nats carry ehd and when they bite a deer it kills them but not instantly. i would say that it is ehd . if it has any marks on it then its probably ehd but if there isnt any marks then its bluetongue. i live in southern indiana and we have a deer farm and we have bluetongue and ehd

I live in Northern WV. We have found 8 dead deer so far in the last two weeks. There is no freezing weather in sight for the next seven day's. I am starting to worry a little bit. One yealing buck, and seven does. no young ones yet. I spoke to a game warden on Monday. He said the disease has not affected the fawns very much?? I am not sure why?? Tom.
