  • Sick Deer

    Killed a doe last week in Leaf RIver WMA. All four hoofs were sloughing and she looked very poor. No fat on the meat when we cleaned her. Her hair was thinning also. My first encounter with this. I checked her in and left one of her legs with the jaw bone. Not much deer movement last week, mostly in morning.

    Hemorrhagic Disease
    Hemorrhagic Disease, usually takes a hit on the deer during the summer. Your deer had this but survived and was starting to recover as indicated by the hooves. They do that when the deer stops growing and then starts growing again after recovering.
