According to WCIA online, with only two months left until deer season begins for hunters the Illinois Department of Natural Resources are seeing a bit of increase in deer diseases. Hunters, landowners, or concerned citizens are asked to be on the lookout for dead or dying deer that could be because of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EDH). The IDNR have seen more than 50 cases thus far this year, with most being in Vermillion, Cook and Lake counties. EHD is a disease among white tailed deer which can spread among and cause localized die-offs. The worst year so far for EDH was back in 2012 with over 2,000 cases over 76 counties reported.
