    Anybody seeing EHD in your area? I would guess that we will lose 5-10k deer in the counties around me. Any body that you talk to are finding dead deer around rivers lakes and ponds. Ionia county started out hard but now we are seeing it in the surrounding counties.

    Was just asked today if I'd heard anything, apparently a dozen otherwise healthy whitetails were found dead along the Kalamazoo river in Allegan County, Otsego area. No cause of death determined yet, but EHD looks likely. A C

    Nothing around our area (Saginaw Country) but the DNR has been sending updates quite often so it sounds as if it is spreading.

    I recall several years ago finding a deer that I figured may have had it (early summer but deer was really thin). It acted as though it was blind too. Never heard of anything although I had asked some folk who lived near where I saw the deer.

    Dnr map looks like just cases in the southern 1/2 of the LP. With the mild winter the deer numbers should be up, but this disease won't help.

    We're hoping for an early killing freeze as that will stop it for this year.
