Dan Gibbs, a TWRA Region IV biologist says EHD is a virus.Deer get it from a biting midge in the genus Culicoides.The midges are very small flies that can be defined as blood sucking insects.

Basically the small insect bites a deer, which in turn infects it with the virus.Some hunters will remember an outbreak a few years back in Middle Tennessee where several deer died.Gibbs also adds that typically the disease occurs in late summer or early fall.
"It is something that occurs fairly randomly and can show up anywhere," explains Gibbs."Sometimes you will find a single deer and sometimes it can be quite dramatic killing several deer."He also tells outdoorsmen the virus is not always fatal.Many deer get the virus and survive.If bitten by the midge, cattle can get the virus but usually don't die.Clinical signs include ulcers on the tongue and palate.Also, deer may be emaciated and will almost always be found near water.
An animal with EHD will let you get very close to it before running off a short distance.
Gibbs says the virus isn't infectious to humans.However, any sick deer can develop secondary infections, and it is not recommended that humans consume visibly sick deer.
So far in Region IV, Grainger County has had one sick deer that died and then tested positive for EHD.Cocke County had one sick deer that died and a sample was sent to Athens.Greene County has had three dead deer where no samples were taken.All of those deer were near water; however this is the only "sign" the Agency has that points toward the virus.
Gibbs also instructs us there is really nothing you can do about the virus.It's just something that occurs in nature from time to time.One year you might not see a single case, and then there are several cases the next.Even more curious about the virus is that even though there are several suspicious as well as confirmed cases in Region IV, there hasn't been the first one in neighboring Region III.Gibbs said he has heard of possible cases in Region I, but none in Region 11.The virus is dependent upon the population of the infecting midge.
Regardless, Tennessee's 2002 deer archery season opens across the state on Saturday morning Sept. 28, said a spokesman for TWRA.The archery season dates in Unit A (Middle and West Tenn.) this year will be Sept. 28 - Nov. 1, Nov. 11-Nov. 22, and Dec. 16-Dec. 20.Unit B, (East Tenn.) will be Sept. 28 through Nov. 1 (either-sex) and Nov. 11 - Nov. 22 (Buck-only).

"These bears are in excellent shape to be returned into wild and are better prepared to go to winter dens than many other bears are this year," said TWRA Biologist Dan Gibbs.
