You should talk with mulecart76 here. You have a lot of knowledge on this subject. He's a die hard deer hunter. You two would talk all day. Good to have someone like this here.

Yeah the mites do kill deer, but more like 20%, atleast around here. Most of the death in the dry seasons is natural filtering. Only the strongest survive and those that are weaker and cant fight for the water and food die. Its sad but its God's way of keeping the animal population from getting to high.

Thanx for all the great info guys! Now I know how it all works. On a side note, it was openeing weekend for taking deer with rifles in Wisconsin this past weekend. The wife and I spent the weekend at the campground and both mornings we woke to rifle reports. Sounds WAY different than the shotguns we normally hear. The beds of local pickups showed a good bounty was taken.

If you kill a sick deer that is dying of mites or what ever,
does that effect the meat in any way?
Will it make us sick if we have it processed and eat it?

I almost hit a deer last night with our Jeep. The deer in question only had 1 antler. Question: do deer shed there antlers each year? Is it that time of year now? Did my deer just lose 1 in a fight or something? Poor thing looked so weird!
they do shed each year but will shed after season, different time for different areas, usually Jan, Feb

He could have lost fighting or early in the season one side was damaged and fell off, it starts off just like soft flesh and hardens over time. If it was damaged it could have grown weird or rotted off. I killed one 2 years ago that had 4 points on one side and spike on the other. It had probably been damaged and never grew right.

There was an article in Ga. Outdoor News magazine, gon.com, about a hunter shooting an 8pt deer scoring about 100 that was a doe. Said it has been seen once or twice a year in Georgia.

I hit a deer once, back in 1990..I was pretending my way through college at FSU, and took off to St. George for the weekend. Let's just say I was in college and doing what college kids do,...running about 70mph on HWY65 at about midnight. Two does came out of nowhere and jumped across the two lane road...the second doe didn't make it. She was big about 70lbs..I guess and got clipped by my pop-ups. I had a 87 Nissan 200SX, sweet little car, anyway if not for my pop-up lights I'm pretty sure she would have come thru the windshield and landed on our laps! We pulled over, found her about 20 yards away and in peace. We called the po po for insurance purposes and made another drink while we were waiting!...Yeah I was pretty stupid back then...anyway, while we were waiting my buddy examined the deer and said she was pretty broken up inside and was stew meat. The cop came examined the scene...more than I had hoped and said I killed a dear out of season, but I could still take her If I wanted. Some good ole boys came by about that time and gladly took her off our hands. We were'nt really equipped to take her with us! Sorry,...long story, BTW she did about $1500 damage to the car.
