Sadly again we are starting to lose deer again from the EHD virus in Indiana. A gentleman on another forum suggested that deer farmers should take the time to notify the Department of Fish & Wildlife if we are sustaining losses to the virus. I agree. Our deer herds are a "canary in the coal mine" for the virus in the wild herd. We have deer farms all over the state and we can provide important info. Bonus antlerless bag limits are determined by the DNR prior to EHD season. The herd could be devastated in a county by EHD and hunters over harvesting the animals that are left could decimated the herd to the point a rebound could take several years. Please take the time and report any losses to everyone who could be effected. All hunters will appreciate it! Thanks for your time and consideration.

Sorry for your losses Jonathan. I remember reading of your battle with ehd last summer as well. Hang in there, I pray your losses are minimal. And I do agree with reporting the losses. While we don't know if the DNR will do anything with our info, it still dosent hurt anyone to provide the info.

DNR listen to a deer farmer?? They most likely would end up blaming the deer*farms for the EHD outbreak and ADD more antlerless tags just to spite what you suggest. They think EHD is caused by TOO MANY deer.*
