With this long spell of hot and dry weather and decrease in food sources for the deer. I'm tempted to take a few more deer than I usually do. I always harvest enough to feed my family and give a few steaks away, but I'm tempted to take a few extra. I think this drought will make for a difficult winter for the deer. Thinning the herd might be benificial. Am I right on that, or am I just looking for an excuse to shoot a few extra?

EHD will help that also. Monitor the effects of EHD on your herd before you go crazy taking alot more deer than normal.

What deerchaser007 said.

As long as this EHD outbreak doesn't get any worse in my area (only a few dead deer found), I plan on hammering the does this year. I'm going to pick out a handfull of "hit list" bucks, but the majority of my hunting will be focused on does.
