Getting going in 127, could be a big one.  Hard horned bucks this weak, lucky if they get to show them off.

Got a call last night, one of the ranches along hwy 25 has many dead deer, should hear more in next day or so.  I would suspect most of the areas north and south from Rice to be affected.

I know of one south of chewlah.
Deer falling down,sucked up,walking dead deer.
Friend called WDFW ,and county sheriff ,nobody would come out to put the deer down.
This was Sunday,talked to friend yesterday,still nobody showed up to even look at the dead deer.
I guess they told him blue tongue,with out even looking at it.

There might even be more cases that are not reported or WDFW are to busy to even respond. Which tells me if they are that busy there must be Alot of blue tongue cases.
Two birds in the Bush is always better than one in the hand-that way you can always go to the Bush and hunt another day .conservation=Better hunting.

'Might be more cases', a tiny fraction get reported.  We need talking ravens and coyotes to have a real number

If a deer needs to be put down...don't wait for anyone to do it...take care of it right then and there.....I know I'm not supposed to but I will not watch a deer suffer knowing it is going to die anyway.

I Agree learned that lesson.

So I was just by my friends house ,that had the dead deer.

I was in chewlah little bit ago,Doe with two fawns.
She looked like a sack of bones.

They don't last long enough with EHD, Blue Tongue etc. to lose weight. She's probably a bag of bones from nursing the two brats all summer
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.

We started catching whiffs of “dead” last week. Doesn’t seem too bad yet but there’s definitely a few dropping.
