EHDContributors to this thread:
I have heard from a Conservation Officer of three confirmed EHD cases in Bon Homme County and talked to many other landowners who have found dead deer. I have also heard from some landowners in Hutchinson and Charles Mix. I am wondering what the pulse of EHD is around eastern South Dakota? I hope these are isolated cases!
It's looking BAD in central SD boys. Two neighbors have already found 6 dead just in the past few days. One was a real stud. Just barely recovering from 2012 and we get hit again. Damn EHD
Nothing in the Northwest corner as of yet. We haven't had enough rain.
just have heard the news of the EHD out there and was wondering if anybody has heard of anything bad just south west of Chamberlain. thanks for any info I am heading out there hunting this Thursday and hoping for the best. the way it sounds I may have to find a different area west farther>
I found 6 today including a real good one. Neighbors have found about 15 to the north and one a few miles west found about 30. Very depressing to say the least. Hand, Hyde, Buffalo and Beadle getting hammered this year.
I see the game and fish are letting people return their licenses in the affected areas. We have had a couple pretty good frosty nights. How about you guys back there?
Wow- I spent 5 days in Charles Mix County on the Missouri River and am very saddened by what I saw and heard from surrounding land owners. Unfortunately, I do not think land owners and sportsman are reporting all of the deer they are finding so the outlook does not look that bad on paper- but I can tell you that it is bad. In this area it is going to be another long road back from this round- sickening.
