I still find it hard to believe that many deer would just jump in and drown. And why would some of them be out of the water?

IMO, the pics make it seem unlikely that that many adult deer drowned. Banks do not appear to be that steep.

That sucks! I would have loved to have gotten one of those bucks. Whatever happened to those deer, needs to be fixed anyway. If yall learn any more info, please let us all know.

the bank is not steep above water but once the water gets a foot deep or so it drops off real quick. I can see how a swimming deer could not get its hooves to grip on the pond liner while floating in the pond. You have to be at the ponds to see what I mean. Geezer says they get very deep.

The ones out of the water were probably dragged out. Actually I only saw one out of the water and it was a skeleton of a button buck. The rest were still in the ponds.

here is my question.. why... would a herd of bucks all of a sudden want to jump in and swim across a pond?? if deer do drink water..(which I have never seen happen in 35 years of deer watching) why would they have to walk out into the middle to get a sip?? why not just stand on the edge like other animals do in the winter??

one of the deer was a doe and I'd bet she took a step too far and the bucks followed after

EHD is the only reason I could see them in that water. I am curious to find out as well.
