    I wouldn't eat the outside.
    As long as those things aren't growing on the other side of hide, the meat is probably fine.
    Did you shoot this Andy?
    NOBODY EVER SHOT BAMBI....they shot his momma.

    Hi:
    The growths are one of the following: papillomas, fibromas, or papillofibromas. The three are related and the difference in the naming of them is based upon the age of the growth. Older ones are gray (crusty) and the newer ones tend to be pink (soft). They are caused by one virus and are transmitted by contact from one deer to another. They are more frequent in large deer populations ie: more chance for deer to deer contact. Came upon a buck in Warren years ago that had so many of them on the head that the deer was blind and walking into trees. Very extensive infections will most likely lead to death. To my knowledge, I am not a virologist, they are not transmitted to people but this could change because a virus can change its genetic code quickly.
