    Reminds me of the Jim Jones mass suicide - maybe it's some kind of elk cult. Elk may be intelligent and wary to us and be gullible as heck to one of their own kind. You never know. I'm sure Far Side cartoonist Jim Frederich could come up with a good caption.

    Nope just this crap. Was hoping to find out what the real reason was when I saw this but I guess the aliens are to blame.

    We have that problem here with Whitetails. It seemed like it was quite a few individuals infected in a small area over a week or so. It was a dry year in an area with alot of stagnant water. the wildlife dept was pretty tight lipped on what the cause was. pretty sure that it was EHD

    We lost lots of good bucks to EHD last year in the drought but not in one area like that. I don't think that sounds like EHD. They were scattered in ponds and up and down creeks, not concentrated that much. Still one guy I know found 14 dead while combining a large soybean field that bordered a creek so maybe. The famous Midwest states for whitetail like KS and MO will be down for a few years after the EHD kill.

    I saw some of this same thing on a hunting show about the EHD in your area.

    It was truly sickening. I found 4 bucks, 3 of them over 150" dead in my hunting area last year. The trail cams show the impact too, it will be interesting to see what established dominance in my hunting areas by the rut. We are going to be real picky, giants or management bucks, until the balance is restored. I'm not sure why it hit the mature bucks worse but it sure seemed to.

    I think I saw those same shows ikic! Its dis heartning but humbling at the same time. Regardless of how hard fish and game tries, mother nature has a ruling, trophy or not she always seems to manage the game.

    I live in Indiana, and I hunt at home and in Illinois every year. I have seen 2 or3 outbreaks of ehd and it seems like it will hit one farm really hard and a mile down the road not do as much damage. It's pretty disappointing when you start finding bucks dead on a farm you have been trying to manage.
