I killed a doe the other day on our land in Mississippi and it had these weird nodes growing in its back legs down by the bone with little while tendrils growing off into the meat.... Anyone got a clue what it is?

No matter where you go .. there you are.

It's probably just scar tissue from an old injury. Who knows?

I think they are lymph nodes. I always remove them when i separate the the different muscle masses.

It is either where a panther or bigfoot tried to take a chunk out of it.

Appears to me to be hemal nodes. They are common in deer and cause nor represent any harm. They are usually found in other areas of the body but this is not an unlikely area. Hard to tell by the pictures but that's my guess.
