Default Eastern Ky Deer Forecast

I know zone 4 got hit hard last year by Blue Tongue but does anyone have a first hand account of huntable populations for this year?

I don’t. However, in 2007 blue tongue hammered the population in south central Kentucky. I owned a small farm there and found 12 dead on it and an adjoining property. Out of a total of 157 acres 12 deer dead and I only covered about half of the property. We estimated a decrease of fifty percent or more of the population. The local herd there is still not up to previous numbers. Maybe 85%. BT can sure devastate the herd. Hope that you guys weren’t hot that hard this year.

Edited to add: the area referenced is Adair and Russell county
