    I agree TBC, It is sad and seems like the deer that have been found are Nice Bucks...Guess the younger ones are stronger but I wouldn't think so...I love to hunt but I hate to see stuff like this.

    I just had to say something glad you agree and didn't take it the wrong way. plus blue tongue is bad an over population of deer in an area just makes it worse so i guess we as hunters in nc should do our part in controlling the population an i suggest in doing so we should not only shoot more does but also if anybody has land plant trees along with food plots an offer water supply so the deer don't have to gang up in one area cause just like humans in a heavily populated city disease spreads faster an is much more likely to occur. Plus when feeding deer spread the food out so the deer aren't all eating in the same spot cause saliva is the fastest way things like this are spread

    That is just terrible man....You hate to see it happen to any deer but when you lose a double drop tine buck to it, it makes it even worse....I have hunted for several years now and I have never seen one with one drop tine on it...Hopefully you don't find any more like that....

    That Was A Nice Buck. I Hope That If It Was HD, That Took This Bucks Life, I Hope Its Dosent Spread to Much. HD Can Wipe Out Deer Fast!! I Saw On The WRC'S Website Up In The Mountain Counties They Have Found Some Deer Dead Possibly From HD. If They Die By The Water Its A Good Chance Thats What Got Them. Say They Get Real Thristy Before They Die.
