Heard more reports from neighbors today...this season is probably looking puny. Ugh.
Extreme NE Davis County, just mere yards from the NW corner of Van Buren. I have directly heard from about 5 or 6 neighbors in the area and have had second hand reports from another 8-10 people in the surrounding area...probably a 5 square mile area.what general area?
That year was rough!!! I found 12 dead on the 130 acre farm that I hunt.Haven’t personally seen anything in Clarke or Warren. Epicenters from 2019 Devastation. Common sense tells me from seeing 2012 and 2018/2019, these herds are building immunity. I had 60-70% of the herd I hunt killed back in 2019 in these same areas. We’ve been drier than a popcorn fart for the last 3 falls. Something tells me the drought and EHD don’t go as hand and hand as people think. My assumption would be more and more hunters , more and more trail cameras, more and more food plots, equates to nothing going unnoticed. EHD hits every year. Some areas worse than others. Fingers crossed my assumptions are correct and it stays away from here for the most part.
