A Deep Dive Into Hemorrhagic Disease (EHD and Bluetongue) in White-tailed Deer With Dr. Mark Ruder

July 20, 2022 By: NDA Staff

In this week’s episode of the Deer Season 365 Podcast, we’re talking with Dr. Mark Ruder of the University of Georgia and the Southeastern Cooperative Wildlife Disease Study (SCWDS) about all things Hemorrhagic disease. We dive into the difference between EHD and bluetongue, what causes the disease, how it impacts local deer populations, new varieties that are appearing, and what we as hunters and land managers can do about it. This is an important episode to hear as we head into that time of year when hemorrhagic disease rears its ugly head.
