Deer Hunting in Louisiana
growth i cut in half while cleaning the deer
brown thing under the tongue
look at the arc of the nose, and the growth under the ear .excuse the head shot hole
What the heck is this??
My buddy shot this thing on a piece of property around slaughter and we don't know what is wrong with this deer. At first he thought it was just a button buck, but after he looked through the scope, he saw the growths on the deer and decided to shoot it, seeing it was had to be a sick deer. The deer couldn't have weighted more than 100lbs, but had a head and neck of a 180lbs deer. After checking the teeth, it was probably around a one year old deer.
The horns are both broken off and have very little mass, so we thought the growth were just battle wounds. But after cleaning it, we saw that the growths were under the skin as well. Notice the arc of the snout on the deer, none of our deer on our property look like this. Also, the deer seemed to be abandoned by the herd, since it was the only deer we saw all morning. What do yall think?
