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.

Cut them off and throw um in the deep fat fryer. They taste like fried gizzards!

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 was to Graceton a couple of times and saw the boats but never saw the fish. I really like that are but missed it this year. Bouncers in reeftops is hot as heck right now. Lemms was loaded with big biters yesterday. Good plan. I have been jigging out in the mud, more and more fish out deep every day. Good luck

      Hey Curt, not me. But I might get over that way tomorrow as I'm coming up this afternoon. Depending on the wind, I hope to go reef hopping pulling bouncers rather than trolling. I'm curious if the big school is still sitting over east of LP, more or less in front of the Graceton cut. It was a big bunch of fish. A week or so of stable weather would sure be nice. The only  time the wind seems to blow from the same direction for more than a day is if it is somewhere out of the north.

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      Yeah I like decoys this thread used have some on here. I will try to hit a show Thank you

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff
