Sorry, Those are not the two photos that I intended to attach. Hopefully these two are the correct ones.
Fibromas. A type of benign skin tumor. Fairly common in whitetailed deer.

I killed a buck a few years back with these mole like looking things all over him. People say they are harmless and does not affect the meat. I didn't take a chance. I threw the whole deer away. Just take it out the herd if you see it and feed the buzzards

Thanks. I checked some more photos and these are only on his one side. I thought that might be the case but wasn't sure. If I see him, he will be taken out just so it doesn't get passed along to any other deer (maybe that's not possible but as CF said, I'm not taking any chances. Thanks again.
Had a doe on camera with one of those. Best part was it was located right behind the sholder. The mole marked the spot she would get shot if she ever showed. She never did!
also known as deer warts.
Doesn't affect the meat or hurt the deer.
The buck I shot the other day had two small ones next to it eye
Fibromas can grow into the muscle tissue but that is rare.......

If I were given the chance to harvest those, that's what I would do & and let the coyotes have them. No need in taking a chance in eating the meat or possibly letting those deer breed or get bred no matter how much research has been done or information out there on this condition. There is alot more deer out there to be harvested & plenty of time to take some. JMO
The normal meat is ok to eat.

Yea, we had some trail cam pics of a few deer last year that were covered up with them, buddy of mine is close to Charles Ruth and emailed them to him for us
We were thinking some kind of tumor but he said it was a common wart, would not harm anything and meat would be ok to eat and they eventually fall off
Just me but I would not eat it but that is just me
Those are the new aiming points they are installing on deer now.
The higher ones on the back are for tree stands over 30 feet up.
I got pictures of a 6 point with warts on it. Didn't get picture of the right side. He had a couple on his neck and 2 on his front leg and three on his side. From what I've read, they say the watrs come off with the hide and the meat is good. I don't want any of the meat though. One story I read about it said insect bites cause it and they can get as big as 8" across. I'm on the fence about whether to take it out of the herd or just let it walk. Been leaning a little more lately about letting him walk.
You can eat the meat and I've done it several times.
There are not bad effect from eating the meat, as a matter of fact ilik to eet da meeeet wunce a weaak frum dem deerszes. Da iz gud to eaaaaat emz yuuuum yuumsz.
