Yep it's pretty bad in the Clearwater region, my In-Laws live around Kamiah, all the deer on their property this summer perished. Very sad. Still deer around, but hundreds dead from EHD. I too was in a Hells Canyon unit last week. Deer numbers seemed low, saw a number of yearlings both Muley and Whitetail, far fewer does than usual.
Thanks for the reports...last time this happened....fish & game downplayed the numbers so don't trust them. Hunting near Elk City in November so hopefully there's some left. Hard to know until time spent in the woods.
