Has anyone ever seen a deer walking stiff legged on their front legs. I cant tell if it is stiffness in the knees or tender toes? First I had a 3 yr old doe do it and now that shes better her yearling son is doing the same thing exactly. Thanks for any opinions! Eldon

Seen some deer with ehd do that hear in iowa this year. Usually pull through it when they had the stiff legs treat with 2cc banamine and 2cc draxxin. That is what worked here.

Eldon, From my own experiences...................It's a symptom of EHD!

Yes Eldon Typical Illinois EHD. Not the crap that came through this year and wiped out herds. Treat and keep an eye on her for infections. She should recover in a few weeks or die. Sorry but EHD is EHD. Most all of mine with this sign have made it.
