This is a Wasatch West Buck taken last week near Alpine.
Would you eat it?
I don't think I would take the chance.

I've seen deer with grows like that. F&G officer told me it was a type of wart or cyst, can't remember exactly what he said. Said they should be fine to eat but I would be real skeptical. What did it look like skinned out?

So, does anyone know what those growths are? I had a deer around here last summer with something similar going on. Only time I have ever seen it. I'll see if I can dig up a pic.

It’s a skin infection, there is no damage to the meat. Like Jester said you all have had something in your mouth similar the lights were turned off

I would feel horrible about wasting meat but I wouldn’t eat it or let anyone eat it. Give it to the coyotes.

I shot a buck like that in Montana in 2007 and I took it up to the F&G office and they said is was some type of warts and that it was okay to eat. I ate it and think I turned out fine.

Wish I had taken better pictures of it.

Pappaloma(probably misspelled) not uncommon but uncommon to have so many and so big. Not harmful to eat, but tough to get past.

I would be a vegetarian before eating that critter. G&F has to give you another tag. Maybe drop it off on there front door if they balk👊🏻

Awful to see... this is probably an extreme case of fibromas (skin tumors). Not sure if they are benign or cancerous or malignant. I don't think the rest of the anatomy (like meat, fat muscle tissue, blood) is affected by them.

I would and I have. A lot of bucks have them. They are a type of cervid wart. It doesn’t affect humans

Reminds me of the chapter in micro about genital warts. Of course the professor had the mist extreme examples.

No I couldn't eat it. Applicable in both circumstances😉
