    I've never heard of EHD. Anyone familiar with it?

    Quite the nasty disease. Once contracted it takes around 7 days for the deer to die I believe. Looks like a grenade goes off inside. The deer are usually found dead near sources of water dying of dehydration and thirst. It comes from being bitten by a midge fly(no see ums). Once a freeze comes through after 7 days you are clear from deer having the disease. We had it here in Nebraska a few years ago(4 or 5) and it wiped out nearly 50% of the states deer the estimated.

    Yikes! Sounds like ugly stuff. This I don’t need - my ruffed grouse hunting has already been wrecked by West Nile Virus.

    In the past they may have misidentified EHD for blue tongue disease
