That looks like it came from a crabapple bush.

They do sorta resemble crabapples, except that my crabapples(which I had none this year due to the freeze) are individual fruits on little stems just like apples and pears, while beautyberrys that I have seen are in clusters along the branch, just as these are pictured. They are usually also much smaller than crabapples, even the smaller crabapple varieties.

Yes sir it looks like he is right with coralberry. I looked it up and whitetail do eat it but I dont believe it is a real good favorite for them.
Thanks for the help.
