    I would contact the Division of wildlife and see if they are interested. They need to keep up with things like EHD and CWD (chronic wasteing disease). It may not be to late to test, even after 3 weeks. It would be of benifit to everyone and if it had one of these, you may want to have any deer tested before eating it from that area (I know I would).
     

  3. EHD has to be tested for very soon after death, so it is too late. It's not an uncommon disease, so that is one possibility. It could also be one of many other diseases, or injuries from a vehicle. Death is a natural part of life, and deer die every day.
