Muzzy Moment: EHD Sequence Caught on Film

Muzzy Moment: EHD Sequence Caught on Film

This somber but amazing Muzzy Moment shows the demise of a buck that succumbed to the devastating effects of epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD). Nick Boley, owner of Windy Ridge Outfitting in southern Iowa, pulled his trail camera memory card late last September and saw the nine-point buck entering a wooded area near a small watering hole. Only minutes later the deer laid down in its final resting place.

From then, the footage captures over two and a half weeks worth of scavenging and decay on trail camera photos, triggered by numerous vultures and coyotes. It serves as a sobering reminder of the disastrous effects EHD can have on whitetails.
