Deer with warts

Recommended Posts

Not sure if this has been going around at all but i have some pics of a deer with some major warts/growths. Not sure how to post the pics. If someone wants to do it, I will forward to them.

Thanks,

Dustin

I would get that to the DNR, I bet they would want to see that and you would get good info as to what it is. Yuck.

I would also recommend contacting the DNR about this one. They would definately like to take a look at that and do a little more investigating.

I saw that pic last year it was going around in some forwards, I think it came from Ohio.

It's called cutaneous fibroma and is basically a viral skin wart that's likely spread by a biting fly. It's in the same general class as human skin warts. You often see one here or there but it's rare to get them that badly. While they're ugly, they are not contagious to humans. Unless the deer has a secondary bacterial infection (really rare), the carcass should be fit for consumption. Since they don't attach to meat, they'll come off with the skin.

Thanks for the insight. Even so, I would be a little skeptical about eating that deer. Just my opinion. Don't know if I could get the thought of what it looked like before being steaks on my plate!

I should have qualified my answer. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't eat one that looked like that. However, I wouldn't hesitate to eat one that had a few of them. They're typically found around the head and neck and do come off with the hide.

I don't know if I would even pull the trigger...say you do harvest an animal like that and report it to the DNR, would they give you another tag to use on a healthy animal?

I think I might have puked on him...

Man is that disgusting. I feel sorry for the deer, but maybe it wasn't really bothering him. I suppose the arrow or bullet bothered him more...

      I remember that video, pretty darn cool!

      Man you can really see the standards of this site of have dropped.  A few years ago we were talking over $80-$100 Thorne Brothers Custom made Ice Rods.  Now a $9.99 dollar rod is the talk for the forum!  We need to bring back the Rich folks!

      I think we should start a Go fund me for Cropduster to take his plane up and give us some pics. lol  He did it a few years ago but not lately.  Its pretty cool veiws from above when ice is forming.  I wonder if he is still lurking around here?

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....
