Exclamation Blue tongue

Last year I found three good size bucks dead. 12 pointer, 10 pointer and a nine pointer. I was told it was Blue toungue. I European mounted the deer because they were too good to let go. I have been told that the diseaese is worse this yaer and steadily growing. Ha anyone else encountered this problem? I live by the river, luckily I have not found any yet this year. What is this disease? I will try to post pics of the bucks that I found and some of he ones that I have caught on trail cam. Only been hunting three years. My wife got me into it. She gave me a mathews bow that she could not pull back. She got a heck of an 8 pointer with her bow last year. ( darn it). I have yet to get a buck, but the does taste just as good. Good luck to everyone.

I noticed that you live in Western Illinois. I live in Big Rock, which is just west of Aurora, IL. I have not noticed any blue tongue disease out this way. Must just be in your area. Please keep us posted if you find any this year.

This was the first I've heard of this disease. I don't think we've had this problem out here in Western New York.

I was looking that up a little while ago and noticed that there's some info about Blue Tongue in the Hunting Tips. Thought I'd throw that out there!

yeah check that article out. the deer tongue does not always turn blue. its mostly a down south disease. most likely to happen in high drought hot seasons. you probably noticed them because you live close to water. they get a fever with this blue tongue and they move to cooler shaded areas and or water.
