Was anyone else seeing pneumonia signs in the red calves at the end of the cull? seeing a fair bit of winter mortality already especially among calves . It usually peaks with us just as winter relents but if it carries on like this will be a bad year.
Took a tracked gator up into the white to clear ice from a hydro intake today. A lot of deer just standing around , passed a jaggy looking calf that clamped when it saw us , worked for a couple of hours at the intake and it was dead when we passed back down the hill, It hadn't got up from where it clamped . A different world up above 1000ft Not really anywhere deer can drop lower to winter these days they seem to be fenced out of everything now.
