Anyone know what these 2 "growths" or bumps or scabs are on the top side of her?
I can see she is full of milk but there is no sigh of the fawn yet.

All I can think of is the "Warble" story I read of on rabbits...

I would say Warbles IMO. The flies have been horrid as well as the mosquito's the last couple weeks out at our woods so it wouldn't surprise me if it was Warbles.

Yeah. Just Moles. Mountaineer is right the official term is a fibroma. The are only on the skin and don't penetrate the meat.

Thank You... I guess she will live to raise her fawn.
Untill this fall that is...


Do we see much of it in the state? (Fibroma ? In my nearly 40 years of deer hunting, thats the first one I've seen here)
