Went and checked some cameras today and got this pick of a small buck,with a weird lump on his back. Any idea what it is?



And a closer look....

Lesion or tumor of some sort i'd guess.

Maybe a mite or some other parasite? Mites lay eggs in animals right?

Looks like a wound that can't quite heal but has scarred on the edges. Could be part or all of a broadhead at the bottom of that hole.

I would think that would of done some damage to him though right? Maybe paralyzing him?

That is nasty looking. No idea what caused it.

The scar on his side kinda lines up with it. Maybe a pass thru that didn't heal good?

I hit a deer high like that once and he ran off. A month later a Jake Peavey who is a MLB pitcher shot him with a rifle. My broad head was still inside and healing. He scored 156 I believe.

Looks like where a bot fly (warble/wolve) exited.

You would be shocked at the wounds deer survive and show no ill effects. I've seen deer with broadheads imbedded in their skulls (penetrating the brain cavity). The deer showed no ill effects.

I'm guessing either a wolve emerged or some type of abscess.

If you look at the like middle of the wound and the edges of it, it looks like the middle is actually raised above the rest of the wound.

I'm looking at the 2nd pic.

So I still think its something like a bot fly.

I'm leaning towards the larval insect answer.
