black spots on bucks lungs?????????
I shot a management buck this morning at out deer lease. While field dressing him i noticed black spots on his lungs, has anyone seen this before? He looked and smelled ok except for his weird rack.

Could be a few things, fungus, pnuemonia caused by bacteria or an abscess in the lungs. Hard to tell with out taking a peice of the tissue and culturing it. Also Tuberculosis comes to mind.

Could be carbon from air polution. Was he killed around urban area?

Nope not close to any urban area. Still waiting on a call from the district biologist! I did go back out and get a large chunck of lung though. Sorry, pics do not do it justice while in a zip lock!!

Aftet talking with the district wildlife biologist and the Indiana board of animal health I found out that it was probably pneumonia or a lung parasite either of which would not make the deer inedible!
