Default New cam pics...poaching attempt?

These are from today, we picked up another at the cornpile last night. Looks like a spike, button buck and the third I can't tell. The spike appears to have a hole on it's left side, I'm wondering if this isn't an out of season poaching attempt by someone. Ideas anyone?

This is a pic of all three together. If only their parents show up for a little "Parent-Bowhunter" conference......

Just looks like a Tic or a wart to me.

Seems to me if he would have gotten shot in that spot... he wouldn't still be walking around.

I was wondering about a tick also because I've pulledswollen ones off dogs, but I've never seen one that big. I had 68 pics on this cam yesterday and forgot to clear it after I downloaded them, so I went out today to clear it and there were 186. I made sure to clear it this time. I also plan on increasing the size of the cornpile later today to see if it draws more in, then staying out until next Saturday when bow season opens. Hopefully we get some bigger bucks and does showing up.

If that is in fact a tick it is the largest one I've ever seen. And perfectly round
