Need rain in Coshocton, bad. @Bighoun52 can you add where you saw that Ben R. Post did a quick look but nothing I could find.
Between June and now total rainfall at my weather station on the farm is way below avg for 43812 zip.

Anyone that has even been through this also knows the numbers are way off! But most of those numbers are still less than what hunters have done this year.

Found a dead doe today and a button buck about a half mile from it on other side of farm..been seeing buzzards flying so took a walk today..hoping some of the big bucks survived..a couple have been awol since first of September. Hoping that frost knocked it out..my buddy Dave saw doe along 33 today walking around like a zombie.Ohio got hammered by it along with some other states. I imagine the state will just allow more tags next year. 🤦🏻‍♂️🤷🏻‍♂️

I'm sure DNR just considers EHD another "tool" in their eradicating tool bag. But also remember if you are getting hit hard, it may be a good idea to not keep trying to kill them on those properties. We as hunters need to take responsibility as well. Unfortunately most hunters will keep popping them anyways and then wonder where all the deer went.

Is it just me or does anyone else wonder if this shit didn't come out of a fucking Wuhan lab somewhere. Food shortage?
Hey. You beat me to that joke/thought by 19 min. I was thinking the same thing as I read the comments. Sad the thought comes into mind even though I realize it is not what happened.

My main hunting property was hit hard a few years back. So far I have been lucky. It has me wondering if the deer at this property have some kind of natural immunity due to past exposure. Anyone else experiencing this?

There are three forms of hemorrhagic disease – peracute, acute and chronic. Depending on virulence of the viral strain, the peracute form can kill deer in 1-3 days. Acute is the classic form and deer may live for several days. The chronic form is typified by growth interruptions on the hooves and deer often survive this form. Deer that survive develop immunity to the disease and does may pass temporary immunity to their fawns through their milk. Most deer that die do so around water because they develop high fevers and seek water to cool their bodies.

I guess they can. Interesting, wonder how many actually do?

And. Can it be passed down to the fawns? (Change DNA)

From what I found, this is the link you need to report EHD deer. Hopefully they have made it easy so people want to submit reports. I haven't found any to report, so can't say. Just trying to make it easy for everyone.
