Seen this one today.
I'm not saying it's blue tongue,this or that.
But I will say this drought has some animals that are not gonna make it.

Seen her right on the road. I pulled my truck up and she didn't get off the road till you could pet her out the passenger window. She got off the road about 5 feet and acted like she didn't want to do that.
This is heavy hunted area ,most healthy deer will jump the road like lightning.
I rather piss in the wind,then have piss down my back.

Looks like most of the nursing does around here. Raising fawns takes a lot out of them. They should start weaning soon so they can put on some fat before winter......Just what I see around here.
Thanks for all for your past support...We officially pulled the plug and have retired from the Biz. Still dabble a little in real estate.

Ya you never know.
Little more rain and a little less dry might help a few out that are kinda weak looking.

I don't think mule deer are anywhere near as susceptible as are whitetail. They're also generally far less skittish
Kindly do not attempt to cloud the issue with too many facts.

Like said in my post with pic ,not really saying it's this or that.
But I do know it didn't look healthy. And didn't look like the other deer I seen that ran off before I could even get a pic.
Really I don't know.

Unfortunately people are starting to find dead deer around the Colville area this last few days, looks like blue tongue is making it's way here now.

Blue Tongue is wiping out some Bighorn Sheep herds in BC.

Dang, I didn't realize sheep were that susceptible but they seem to not be very disease resistant so I probably shouldn't be surprised. Just sad to hear it impacts sheep too!

I had three Icelandic sheep die at home in the last week. I changed feed and was blaming that but you never know, could be blue tongue I guess. I'm seeing a few fawns without their mothers now too down the road and not seeing the only little buck that was around the last month.

:yeah: I thought it only affected white tail. Cwd is the one that gets mule deer.

Both can get it but it is more prevalent in whitetail, I believe because they tend to congregate more, particularly during dry years.  All ruminants are susceptible to it.

CWD is more prevalent among whitetail as well, likely for the same reason.  It can hit any deer family member, whitetail, mule, blacktail, moose, elk.
