Anybody have an idea what this growth is, and should I eat the meat?

When you opened the chest cavity was the diaphragm ruptured? If the diaphragm is ruptured where should be no problem eating it. Or was it full of pus, if so I would not eat it as its infected.

I never did open it up just cut it off and placed in a bag to look at it later. I don't think it had puss it was kind of hard

Looks like a goiter. Common down south. It's a skin virus of deer and the mass is benign. I wouldn't be afraid to eat the meat, but that's just me.

Slice it up thin and make jerky out of it and give it too people you don't like.

To give an educated opinion I'd have to sneak behind the deer, lift it's tail and give it a shocker: Snapping turtles are adverse as are house cats: FWIW

Many years ago I shot a buck with half a dozen grapefruit size growths and many smaller ones. I know I see wouldnt have been able to choke that sucker down so I considered it my deer for the year, but fed it to the fox in the back yard. This summer I had a buck in the backyard nearly every day with three or four large growths on his face.


Deer fibroma? Also referred to as cutaneous fibromas, fibromas, fibromatosis, or deer warts. Deer fibromas are wart-like growths on deer that are typically caused by an infection with a species-specific papillomavirus. These manifest as firm, warty growths fixed to the skin of a deer.
