I get about 50 - 100 pictures a night on the stealth cam in my yard, and have never seen this deer before, or since. I cannot identify what is sticking out of the deer, or how old the wound might be. It isn't an arrow, but I'm not sure about any type of crossbow equipment. I'd really appreciate any ideas.

Could be a carbon arrow that has splintered. Hard to say for sure.

That was my first thought as well Darren. But I still think it's a carbon arrow that has splintered.

Thank you everybody for your responses. After playing around with light and contrast in photoshop, I'll have to agree it is an arrow, now I can see the white fletch which I couldn't see at first because it was so light. I still haven't seen the deer in person. Does anybody have any thoughts on how old the wound might be? It looks to me like it festered and then healed over, but I can't imagine it's been in there for over a year like that.
