Last year hemorrhagic diseases rocked whitetails, mule deer and elk. Fifty-one counties in South Dakota had reports of dead deer in the fall of 2012, including those that succumbed to two different strains of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD) and two strains of Bluetongue virus. A total of 3,714 dead or sickly deer were reported.
