Thread: Deer warts

  1. #1

    Default Deer warts

    I've had bucks with a wart or two but nothing like this before. Might be a hydocyst forming at the base of his neck.

    I shot a buck in 2007 that made those warts look minor. Took it to the fish and game and they said it shouldn't affect the meat. I ate it and it was fine.

    Wish I had gotten better pictures of it.

    It would be tough for me to get that image out of my head while eating. Shot a buck yrs ago that had muscle worms. Supposed to be fine to eat. I ate about a third and tossed it. Just couldn't get past the worms. You could see them in the meat. Shivered with every bite.
