Guys i have a question, At 1 of my stand locations i have been smelling something dead on my way in and out. Thinking i might have got a snake/baby rabbit etc. with the bush-hog a few weeks ago i didn't give it much thought, but today i was checking my trail camera and the smell bought knocked me off my Foreman, so i played Bloodhound and found a Small doe/button buck tucked back into some brush about 20 yards from the pond edge, First thing that came to mind was CWD because a case was already found on the Virginia/NC line but confirmed in Virginia so I'm puzzled as to what happened to it? Its about 150 yards from a road, i guess its possible that it got hit and ran that far and died. I didn't spend much time around it because the smell would gag a maggot off a gut wagon and i didn't see any holes but come to think of it i smelled it the middle of last week when season wasn't in yet.
