Truth, are you saying you gave your buck 4cc's of the 48mg Dex? I'm only two years into looking after the whole herd full time, so I'm still learning every day. I was always told to mix it with an antibiotic, and that has just always been Draxxin for me.

2 years in a row one shot of that is all it took to turn around my breeder. He's got to be in bad shape to let you dart him more once a year. He'd run himself to death if you tried to dart him the next day. If we run deer we give Dex and Thiamine and Tryptophan as well as Excede. You can't get all that in a dart so day 1 and they usually get dex and thiamine, day 3 dex and antibiotics. That's what works best for us. We've saved about a dozen does this year but about 50/50 on bucks so far.

The strain of EHD we are experiencing here in Ohio has NO signs or Symptoms. The buck looks great one minute and dead 3 hours later. NO symptoms to treat like I have seen and heard about. This is a bad one. I had one buck dead and stiff in the morning laying in the normal bedded position..... never kicked or thrashed around like they usually do. feet layed under, head turned and dead !

Roberts Ranch, I've only lost one deer over the years like you are seeing, no signs at all that I could see.

Sometimes I see deer that, up close, just look like they hurt, in their eyes. Like a four year old child with a temp, you can look in their eyes and see it. No other symptoms. I treat immediately.

Others just get a limp, sore feet, no other symptoms.

Good luck on the rest of the herd.....
