Would you eat the meat?
I tagged a doe yesterday and when I field dressed her I noticed that the membrane that normally surrounds the guts was odd looking. It seemed thicker than normal and had a dark appearance along with tiny black spots throughout. The shot was a double lunger. Have you seen this before and would you eat the meat? Any idea what it is?

It doesn't sound like anything I'd worry about. Was there any bad odor? I'd cut it up like normal.

Nope, no odor.

Pretty sure this has been discussed before and it was a pretty normal occurrence. I can't remember exactly what it was, but do remember it was no biggie.

I would not be worried. Don't know what your explaining, haven't seen it before. The only time I get concerned is if it was previously wounded, then I investigate and smell around, and use caution when cutting up and cut that area out.

It's the result of some disease/parasite whitetails get. The deer that were taken with the former camp my Dad and Uncle hunted with would sometimes be like that. We ate them, and we are still alive.

We are still healthy as ever.

Spotted carcass
Call your State DEC/DNR/DEP (wildlife conservation department) and ask them. Maybe ask to speak with a Wildlife Biologist about your doe.
