Here's what they are...............nothing to worry about. If anyone knows the real name for them, I'd like to know too.

Exactly. They are not in the meat anyway, so it's really no big deal. I've seen uglier things in deer than those, I can promise you that.

Found them in a doe today. Those are the tenderloins on each side.
I've forward your photos to my friend the game biologist for my area. I've also seen them in most deer I've taken.

I'll post the info when I heard back from him. ---Thom

They look like lymph nodes. I've seen them in the deer's throat but never in the loins.

Maybe it's common in some parts of the country and not in others (?) (all I've been dealing with is Missouri, mostly grain-fed, deer) but I would've been surprised too if I opened one up and saw that. Maybe on deer #31 I'll be surprised....)

I've only seen this, in that area, on does, and not every one that I've taken. That's why I believed it to be fawn nursing related, particularly the way the fawns will '" bang the sack " with their heads, possibly causing small capillaries to rupture.
