Ok it just dawned on me that in the countless days spent in the woods since childhood till now I have never found a dead deer that has seemingly died of natural causes. Plenty of road kills in fields and woods adjacent to roads. A few winter kills while living in VT. But never in the spring summer or fall have I come across a dead deer that seeming died just because. Barring ehd or something like that have you ever found a wild animal that apparently layed down and never woke up?
