Deer Numbers down in the area

Some people may not believe it, especially those who have hit a deer in the recent past, but according to Darren Brown, natural resource officer with the Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks, and Tourism says that deer numbers are down, especially in Marshall County, this year.  Brown says it could be because of a disease that the deer are coming into contact with, such as EHD and blue tongue virus.  They can get EHD thru the bite of a midge, which is similar to a gnat.
