Puss on deer's brain

Recommended Posts

protiller

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.

      Here's a little back ground. The Dakota originally called the lake Mde Maka Ska (modern spelling Bde Maka Ska, pronunciation: Be-DAY Mah-KAH-Ska)[5] meaning White Earth Lake,[6] or White Bank Lake,[7] a name that probably was given by the Ioway who inhabited the area until the 16th century. Another Dakota name for the lake may have been Mde Med'oza, which was the name initially adopted by settlers, either as Lake Medoza or in translation as Loon Lake.[8] The Dakota also described it as Heyate Mde, meaning "Lake Set Back (from the River)".[9] The United States Secretary of War, John C. Calhoun, sent the Army to survey the area that would surround Fort Snelling in 1817. Calhoun had also authorized the construction of Fort Snelling, one of the earliest Euro-American settlements in the state. The surveyors renamed the water body "Lake Calhoun" in his honor. The Fort Snelling Military Reservation survey map created by Lt. James L. Thompson in 1839 clearly shows the lake as bearing the name "Calhoun".[10] Minneapolis skyline reflected in the lake in 2010 Calhoun's legacy as a pro-slavery politician has led critics to question whether he is the best person to be honored. In 2011 the Minneapolis Park and Recreation Board visited the issue. Their legal counsel concluded that the board could not legally change the name, as state law gives that power to the Commissioner of Natural Resources, and then only in the first 40 years after the name was designated. Following the Charleston church shooting in June 2015, a fresh drive to change the name started via an online petition. The Park Board indicated it would look into whether they could change the lake's name through state action,[11][12] and in fall 2015 added the Dakota name to signage below the official name.[1] On March 22, 2016, an advisory group decided via majority vote to urge the Minnesota Park and Recreation Board to restore the lake's former name.[13] In 2017, the Minneapolis Park Board voted unanimously to change the lake's name back to that of Bde Maka Ska[14] and the Hennepin County commissioners approved it more narrowly.[15] The change needs final approval at state and federal level in order to go into effect.[16] There was also a proposal to rename the lake for Senator Paul Wellstone, who is buried in nearby Lakewood Cemetery.[17]

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources today announced the State of Minnesota has approved changing the name of Lake Calhoun in Minneapolis to Bde Maka Ska. The DNR’s decision follows a Hennepin County Board resolution requesting the change.  “The DNR respects the role of elected county boards in determining name changes for geographic features,” DNR Commissioner Tom Landwehr said.  “In this instance, I am confident the Hennepin County Board carefully considered community values and citizen perspectives in determining that this was the right action to take. DNR’s role is to ensure the county followed the proper process.” The DNR’s decision means the lake name change will become official in Minnesota when the DNR’s approval is officially recorded by Hennepin County and published in the State Register. Hennepin County commissioners voted to seek the name change Nov. 28. The DNR will submit the Hennepin County resolution, along with the state approval, to the U.S. Board of Geographic Names, which will approve or deny the name change for federal use. The DNR is the state agency that approves or denies name changes for geographic features, after Minnesota counties consider name change resolutions, gather public input and vote on proposed changes. In considering county requests to name a geographic feature or change a feature’s name, the DNR’s role is to consider 1) whether the county followed a proper public process prior to taking its action, and 2) whether the county-approved name complies with naming conventions. For example, names must avoid confusion with similarly named features, and names may not commemorate a living person. A copy of the DNR’s order for this name change and details on how Minnesota geographic features are named are available on the naming geographic features webpage.

      my dad grew up in The Pas, my grand parents owned the avenue hotel and they had a place on Clearwater. Summers we would go up and fish and ski and such. Lots of good memories, other than the horseflies (Bulldogs). My experience was always it really didn't matter what you used, for lakers as long as it was shiny it got hit. Our technique was pretty simple, drop it to the bottom and reel is up fast. they hit hard on the way up and its clear like superior so you can see them a long way down if you have good ice. The river right out of town is good for char too.

      Yeah, ok, I'm using the 8. My drill also overheated after punching 5-6 holes in quick succession. Thanks for the responses... sorry for hijacking the thread

      So I just came back from Lake Winnipeg, and the 3 feet of ice they have there and found my auger lacking. I gave up the gas auger years ago to switch to the clam plate and drill. Around here, even Bemidji where I fish the most, I have never had a problem with getting through the ice. Lake Winnipeg is a different story. Anyway, I have a 6 inch bit now, and when with drilling a couple holes side by side to deal with the big fish but thinking back to my old 10 inch strikemaster I was almost willing to deal with all the issues I had with it to have some space to wrangle a fish. Soooo, im looking at going with an 8 inch bit, with the Milwaukee and the clam plate. I know that clam had a gearbox in the past that would help with that but seems they no longer offer it. will I tear up my drill with the bigger auger? I have two 9 amp batteries  and double the torque now too so I'm figuring a few  extra holes compared to the five amps and 650inc pounds I had for the previous drill setup. Suggestions? thoughts? other than getting a gas auger, cuz that isn't happening.
    • mrpike1973
      That would make a difference now wouldn't it?  Oops my mistake I have a 6 inch just got done fishing today with 5 amp battery I got 27 holes at 19 inches of ice. I noticed the drill seemed warm after drilling 5-6 in a row but no problems. I don't have a gas auger any more but I see what the guys are saying about a power auger.
