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 always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy. 
    • Brandon Klatt
      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.

      They work. And as stated, sometimes better then live suckers! Cliff

      I can’t say Big Marine is a big fish factory but it should have nice clarity.  The main lakes of Minnetonka are pretty cool to play on.  Yeah, Minnetonka is a muskie lake but there are a lot of nice pike swimming out there.
    • AlwaysFishing23
      I’ve had the same issue with keeping them alive. Dead bait works way way better than live bait anyway. Defiently going to give that a try wanderer!
    • Wanderer
      I’ve saved dead/dying suckers before.  Pull them as soon as you can and freeze em.  I’ve sprinkled them with salt before bagging and freezing.  Fish them on the bottom. There was a time I targeted big pike with big minnows and would actually kill a minnow before sinking it to the bottom with one of my lines. As with everything, it’ll work better some places at some times, not as much as a live minnow other times.  Later season when pike cruise just below the ice scooping up the dead loss of the winter, suspending your dead sucker a foot below the ice can be your big fish ticket.
