Just wondering if any of you deer hunters had a source of info on EHD occurrence in Arkansas. A guy I know who has a private high fence area claims he has probably lost about half the deer in the last three or four years. These were not deer brought in from somewhere else - they were native deer fenced in when the fence was built. I asked him if he thought it was affecting the deer outside the fence and he said no doubt - maybe more due to the stress unfenced deer have to endure. He also said some deer farmers he knows have quit the business because of the mortality rates their deer were suffering due to EHD. This is probably worse in the south and east parts of Arkansas, due to the occurrence of the midge that bites the deer and their affinity to swamp/lowland areas. Anybody have any info to enlighten us?
