I believe EHD is a disease that God has created to help control the population of the deer. Each year the deer population grows by leaps and bounds. Hunters can't control this population on their own. Even though EHD may take some nice mature bucks out of the hear, I think it is imperative to remember that this disease may be necessary. I have also read that EHD is not thought to adversely effect humans either by being bitten or eating the infected meat, but it is still not recommended to consume the infected meat.I've also read that the first freeze should kill the midges and reduce most of the midge population responsible for the harm caused. In fact, that is why EHD is so bad this year because of the mild winters we've had lately.

I know man the winters in WNY have been pretty generous lately. As a matter of fact today I was sweating bullets just being outside maintaining my 4 wheeler. It was like 57 today.
