Default Never noticed this before.

I have recently been seeing deer in my back yard and in the woods about 20 miles away, on both occasions these deer have these spots on their back legs on their knee area.
At first I saw just the 1 behind the house I thought she was hurt.
Now i am begining to think it's something else but I don't know what.
The spot is round and looks bloody! (next time I will try to get a picture)
Any Ideas??????

It is very common for deer to get warts and tumors. I have seen them on cows that oozed before.

Almost every deer i get on my cams has a growth somewhere on it's body. Nothing to worry about.

I have found it to be more common on the older cows and bucks which does make sense when you think about it. Nothing you need to be concerned about if you ask me. I'm more concerned about the inside.
