Must be blue tongue. Hit us 5 years ago and killed over 50% of the deer in our area. The woods stunk of rotting deer in September & October.

I wonder if deer left produce more when they die off like that?

That's a shame no matter how big it is. Hate to seem them go that way. We just had one found beside our property hit on the highway...stupid roads.

No kidding! Long arming it my rear!!! The guy has his elbows down near his side like his elbows are braced so he can hold that big friggin thing up! The mass on that buck is unreal and what a shame to die like that! Blue tongue is a real killer and can wipe out close to 100% of the deer in a particular area once it hits and all you can do is pray for cold weather to kill the insects so they don't continue to spread it.

I've heard more about EHD than bluetongue this year... and finding them in or near water is one of the tell-tale signs of EHD (maybe of bluetongue too?). Either way- that sucks!

Yes it's pretty sad and as far as the guy trying to hold it some special way??? Haha, whatever you think. EHD and blue tongue are very similar diseases. The disease is carried by certain bugs/mites and normally even if deer are bitten by something with the disease they will usually come out of it. However, where deer have a hard time coming out of it is in hot and dry weather (drought), which is what we have obviously had all summer. It is a shame for sure! By the way, I'm no expert on EHD and blue tongue, just saying what ive read online. We need weather to cool down soooon!!
