Had a deer on the property yesterday that just wasn't acting right. Wife seen him first. A little 6 point. He was laying at the edge of a pond. The pond is down about 3 ft right now so there's roughly 5 extra ft of shore. At first he appeared to just be bedded down. He would hold his head up for a moment then slowly drop it down then raise back up an drop again. Over and over for about 20 mins. Then he tried to get up and was extremely wobbly, staggering, kinda like he was drunk. He fell back down and continued the same mannerisms. We watched him for a good 2 hrs and he just couldn't get up, couldn't keep his legs under him. For a bit I thought maybe he had a broken right front leg but I ruled that out. He had no outward signs of injury. I finally had the thought of EHD and decided that was what we were witnessing. I called Ga DNR and spoke with a gal who took my name and # and said she would have a tech call me. Sure nuff about 4 hrs later a fella called and the minute I said acting funny, drunk, near a pond, he said that was probably the case. I was surprised he didn't want to come take a look. He expired over nite right there in the same spot. The more I read about it, I find its a lot more common than I thought. And lord knows the conditions are prime for it right now. Extremely dry, hot, end of summer, etc. Anyone else seeing this ?
