I have shot two deer with a few tumors on them, but nothing like this one. One of them in PA and one in VT. The F&G Biologist told me that it was fine and you could eat the meat, but I don't think I would have if they looked like that.

Sorry, but that is one UGLY buck.

Thats got to be the most tumors I have ever seen on any mammal. I wouldn't know what to do if something like that walked past my treestand. Thats a once in a lifetime animal for sure.
If it were me... id shoot it and show it to a local game warded. maybe they would tell me that it was a mercy shot and i could keep my tag. JMO

That deer actually has Deer Warts,which are actually fairly common and caused by a virus. They can't be spread to humans but are spread from deer to deer through contact. I had a few trail cam pictures of a doe with one large wart on her face, during the winter it froze off and then the next summer it grew back again. I had a chance to take her that fall bowhunting but unfortunately shot over her back. Her are a few pictures of a deer taken in Rhinelander Wisconsin area with deer warts, kind of gross.

In college we called those cutaneous fibromas. (deer warts)

Supposedly, the meat is fine. The tumors are just on the skin.

I say... bleach. I wouldn't eat it. [:'(]
