Devastating disease. I hope not ...

I'm thinking you are probably correct. She just wasn't full of spunk when she ran off.

Some do survive it....and their hooves peel off later.

Seen deer hit a pond and swim around during the summer months while trapping. I thought one was just swimming from one side to the other. She was almost to the other side when she turned around and came back to where she entered, lol. Just took a swim to escape the heat.

Several years ago while rifle deer hunting I was watching a very small doe feeding in a harvested corn field .It was mid morning and the sun was shining The farmer had chopped the stalks after the corn had been harvested so the remaining cover was about 4 inches tall .While the doe as legal game it was small so I had no intention. of shooting it . Suddenly it laid down in the field . I was not sure why but it flatten out as much as was possible with it's neck also flat to the ground . As I was sitting in my tree stand wondering why the deer was laying like that L noticed another hunter walking several hundred yards away . It was not close to the deer and it was not walking towards where the deer was bedded in the open field . Some time after the hunter was out of sight the deer stood back up and resumed feeding .The survival of wildlife depends on each animal using it's instincts to do what it does to feed, escape it's predators, and reproduce It knows it,s home range better than most of it's predators and use those instincts to avoid harm .

SW you're obviously getting old! Turn up the hearing aid so you can hear the tree knocks for Pete's sake. grin

I've seen deer many times swimming out in the open bay, nothing for them to swim from the barrier beach to the mainland and back, distance of a couple miles plus, depending on where they start.
Saw a set of triplets make the journey once, looked like they were tied together they were so close, all you could see was the 3 heads and necks, looked like a sea monster from a distance, lol
