These are a couple pics I downloaded off my game camera this morning. I have seen this buck before but never his whole body. That's an odd something on his chest. Hopefully it's not terminal, cause that's not a bad buck. In a couple years he could be be very nice. Anyone have an idea or thought of what could have caused that thing on his chest.

Could be a Kardashian deer with a boob job like that.

fatty lipoma?

Doesn't look like fibromatosis. My guess is either Fibroma or Lipoma. Could be cancerous and he'll continue on until it impedes his ability to feed. Possible it also might be an encapsulated growth around an object that was impacted such as a stick in which it should eventually get pushed out and the area will heal.

Won't know for sure until you harvest him

I believe bobweaver nailed it. And it hasn't effected the deers health yet. He seems to be in good shape and healthy.

Thanks for the info bobweaver. In my 39 years I've never seen such a thing on a deer. I'll research the terms you have presented. I more than likely will never harvest this deer as I'm sure the night and road hunters will get him before me. If I had a choice I'd give him at least another 3 years.

Not unusual, not a problem for the hunter, almost common.

I got a picture this year of a buck with the same type of growth. Posted it up here Growth Post. I found some information on the Michigan DNR site about Hydrocyst. Apparently its common and only the brisket is bad but the rest of the meat is fine if you decide to take the deer this year.

I have about a dozen pics of this deer from last year, she was eating fine and seemed healthy. I'm going to check my trail cams again this year and see if there's still a deer with a growth, but it seems like this is a common occurrence. My Dad said he has seen this before as well.

but there may be a gallon of puss in there too, in which case he may be good for YOU to eat, but not for ME.

Inject it with Dillo Dust about a week prior to harvesting him, should give a nice buttery flavor

I was thinking maybe a broadhead and an infection.
