Got a deer today but have an issue that none of us around here can figure out: White lesions on one lung, all within and on it. One piece was the size of my two fists together, consistency of pressed cottage cheese.
This lung was hit on the shot and while there is the usual bright blood there is also a lot of milky fluid that is also coming out. Inside of the lung are these white growths/deposits. Is on only in one lung. There is so much of it that it was on the ground where she fell after the shot (thought it was fat and/or bone pieces at first).
Also, in the "sack" that contains the heart there was another sack that was hard like a chicken gizzard. Opened it up and it was full of yellow/brown stuff that was the consistency of half-warm butter. Heart was full of the milky fluid - assume that it got there after the shot.
Doe was extremely light but showed no signs of illness before the shot - was alert and moved well.
Have pics, but I dont know if I should post them or not. Anyone ever see this before? Obviously something is wrong with this deer. I have reported it to the game warden to come look at it.
