Puss on deer's brain

14 posts in this topic

Ok so this is weird....The buck I shot this fall had a bunch of matter in his right ear and some matter in the corner of his eye. I didn't think much of it than he might have just gotten over an ear infection. What got wierd was when I picked up his head to take pictures and puss came out at the base of his antler. So I thought...well, maybe he got his brains rattled while fighting earlier this fall. So, when I cut off his antlers I noticed a bunch of puss on the right lobe of his brain and blood clots underneath his skull. So, now I've come to deduce that I shot some sick (Contact Us Please) type of deer.

Has anyone else ever seen something like this in the past?

Did you dig around in the head or top of the neck at all? The buck I shot with the rifle this year had 6 in. of arrow shaft and a broadhead buried under his spine. I found it when I was taking out the backstrap and on the right side he had a lot of puss from the infection. Dig around a little bit and see what you find. Other than that, I'm not sure what it could be.....

I have to agree when I read that comment I pretty well lost it. Crude, but very funny.

That, my friend, is one of the funniest things I have read in some time. I actually had to scroll back to the topic to get your drift. I am far too young and have not married long enough (and now ashamed, too) to not have picked up on that sooner. Thank You.

I was wondering why the subject changed when he started talking about matter coming out of the ear and antler. Then I had to re-read the title and got it grin.gif

Sounds like an infection to me.

LOL! I'm actually crying....That's the funniest thing I've seen on FM in a long time.

You say pa-tah-doh, I say Poh-ta-toe

Wow.

Allright....I would have to guess there was a fight and that deer lost. If you actually saw how many hogs, sheep, and beef cattle had puss pockets on their bodies you would be amazed. These can be results of internal infections, infected scars, injection needles that broke off, you name it. Thankfully we have one of the best food protection systems in the world and you don't see that in your little celophane waxed paper meat world.

But it does happen in nature. Shouldn't be anything wrong with the meat and you aren't eating brain matter anyways (I hope)

Now, as for what's really on all of our brains.... grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

You know that was my first thought too, but I decided to keep my mind out of the gutter grin.gif mainly because I didn't want to be the only one that thought that way grin.gif now that I know I'm not, I appreciate the humor....

Oh, you found some pus in his head. I'm guessing its from an old injury that got infected bullet, broad head, etc. I have seen many deer in the past with wounds that are infected and it's usually isolated to the area of injury.

That's kind of what I thought because his one antler was slighlty loose when I picked it up. Plus, puss came out from the base of that antler. But the wierd thing of it was that when I cut off his rack there was a pocket of puss underneath his skull, on the lobe of his brain. And on the bottom side of his skull there was a massive blood clot. I'm guessing he got his butt kicked while sparring earlier this fall.
