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.

      This may not be what you want to hear but the answer is most definitely yes!  The Mega imaging really paints a perfect picture, you do not have to be an expert in reading side imaging any more you just look at the pictures and know exactly what your looking at.  On a side note, the outside case of the Helix 9 and Helix 10 are exactly the same.  I know the 10 is quite a bit more but believe me it is worth it.  I have made the decision to try and save some money many times in my life and only been disappointed, when your wishing you spent the extra cash within a month of your purchase that stinks and it is a really expensive decision to fix.  Just my $0.02.  Good Luck with your purchase.

      I heard reports that the Fectos Point area has been good. I have not been there though. Big Bay is still going. I caught 7 in about an hour right at noon in pouring rain! Cliff

      Was at Sand Point 5/17-5/23...did ok only..5 eyes, pike and smallies. The water temp rose so fast it turned off fish. We did better on Friday and Sat...then water warmed and slowed. Most on rapalas...no live bait.. That was a mistake may have done better. Hey slush you in a hot spot...or normal area on Crane. We tried NW bay and only Pike

      So dad, my bro, n I started fishing at 4pm last Sunday (crane). We caught 21 eyes, 4 sauger, n a 10in. Perch. We were fortunate enough that 12 eyes, 2 saugers n the perch were keepers. We also had the pleasure of throwing back two 18", a 22" and a 24" eye. We ended up fishing  for 5 hours. There were 2 thing we noticed that affected r fishing. (A) the lack of water ment lack of current which is fundamental the first 3 weeks of opener. (B) we seen 14+ eyes surface as well as 6-7 mayflies in the boat. Getanet I hate 2 state the obvious but from my quick look at kab u weren't even close to a spot I would think would be good this time of year. The best 4 types of spots the first 3 weeks of eyes opener in vnp r current, current, current, n sand. I've never fished kab this time of year but I know Sullivan bay/ash river is the best spot.

      I used to fish the City lakes quite a bit many years ago.  Calhoun was a go to for me to have a fun bass fishing day.  I can’t tell you how things are now but back then (1990’s) I’d not only expect numbers but at least one 5 lbr each outing.  My best from there was 6lb 4oz caught on a 10 inch black/blue Power Worm.  We used Carolina Rigged lizards as our second best bait.  We lost some of those to the muskies though. Lake of the Isles was not as good to us but had more interesting Muskie stories than Calhoun did.   Heck, is it even called “Calhoun” anymore?

      On our way up for the weekend.  Live or frozen shiners?   Best place to get them?  thanks
