Weird growth on fawn?*** updated pictures***

26 posts in this topic

The Buck I took last season during Nebraska rifle season had the same type of growth, only a little smaller. After field dressing him I took a look inside the "growth" and found a dozen or so golfball size like spheres in a clear fluid. The venison was fine though. Spit.

Its an early developing doe. smile

Seriously though, it doesnt appear to bother her, but if it keeps growing, its gonna be ugly.

THat's strange looking. COuld be a wound that filled with puss, but that would be mighty large, My guess would be it's some type of genetic birth defect. Try hangin that on your wall.

Ive seen this before. When I was 14 years old I was sitting in a box stand with my grandpa and a doe crawled underneath a barbed wire fence. My grandpa and I were both appawled at the TWO milk jug sized growths between her front legs. My grandpa said he had never seen anything like that in his life. Until now, I didnt think I would ever see this again, or hear about anyone else seeing anything like this. Its weird...

It's an injury that's filled with fluid. It'll eventually pop and drain. Typically, it's from a fence post, stick, or some other foreign object. For a deer, it's the bodies response for walling off an infection. Gross but it'll survive.

I shot a doe one year with my bow and never recovered her. Two weeks later in the same area I saw something just like that. It looked to be the same deer to me. I would assume that its an injury, although i don't know if that is going to kill it or not.

Looks at least as healthy as it's sibling.

We've actually harvested two deer with growths just like that. They were filled with all sorts of stuff but mostly liquid. There was some semi-solid masses inside as well. Despite their otherwise healthy appearance we elected to remove the deer from the herd in case it was an imparing quality or worse yet some wierd whitetail disease spreadable to others. I'd kill it. Maybe try shooting the growth and spill the ooze. Maybe not. Really though, that is nasty and I would shut it down.

What about a twin that didn't seperate or develop all the way? Kind of like a conjoined twin.

I'm very much against wanton waste or illegal harvest, but this thing needs to be shot and left for the wolves. Maybe you will have an extra tag left and you could register it and leave it lay.

The increase of the size of that growth in that amount of time says it will not make it much longer if it keeps increasing at that rate.

You should send the picks to a biologist at the DNR or U.S. Fish and Game. Maybe they can tell you what it might be. How would we know if its in pain? How do we know if its experiencing discomfort? I would say shoot it and put it out of its/our misery. Who knows you may never see it while out in the field.

I've seen something like that on a hunting show before and it was non life threatening. I can't remember exactly what it was called now.

Well, if that thing doesnt pop soon, its gonna be life threatening, because the deer wont be able to walk soon.

I believe it's from some kind of worm in the liver or something like that.

I would have to say... I might take her out of the herd. Wolves in your area? I would think this would be one of the first they would make a meal out of. She does not look like she is putting any fat on since your first pictures.

It would be interesting on how she looks in a month or two if no one takes her.

I'm surprised it hasn't broken already. It even looks like some of the fluid has hardened, which would make it even more difficult to drain. I've seen lots of them over the years but never one that large.

I know the problem she is doing too many bench presses, getting ready for those big bucks!

    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
    • What a fun election cycle, first Trump dismantles the Republican party and may take them to even lower lows by winning. Then even more surprising is the Democrats totally imploding all on their own and losing to Trump in the process. No hollywood script can compete with this kind of crazyness, just happy to be alive to witness all of this mess and hope there is much much more to come. Something tells me I won't be disappointed, I am almost excited for the next one, 4 years ago I never would have thought that in my wildest dreams.
    • If this crazy weather keeps up a guy might have to go to the mountains to have enough snow to ride.
    • I purchased a 20v 986 Dewalt brushless and used it with my Nils 8" and could not believe how fast it cut. Very close to my Tanaka motor as far as speed. My plan is to use it with my 6" Nils but wanted to give it a good test and it passed with flying colors. 
    • Pretty sure Bernie had that figured out. After the primaries I voted for "not Trump" You guys haven't picked up that liberals are still going for not Trump, even if that means Mike Pence (who from a political position standpoint is worse for liberals).   Instead you have Trump, a man incapable of taking any form of criticism regardless of how irrelevant it is to anything. Why do I post the crowd sizes? Because Trump, in a speech given only to members of the CIA, thought it was important enough to mention, as well as to have a team of his own people there to applaud when he mentioned the size of the crowds.
