My name is Sean, I live on the eastern end of Long Island,NY. I'm not a hunter ( I fish), but we sure have a lot of Whitetail in the neighborhood. Today, this doe was in my yard and I noticed she has a pretty good sized red lump on her shoulder, can anyone tell from the pic if this looks like any type of a disease i should be worried about, or does it look more like an injury? I haven't seen anything like it before .
Here's a couple other pics of two bucks from early this morning, as you can see, they have really lost any inhibitions as far as being out in the open around people, the population is really out of control here.
I guess this one is called "piebold" is that correct?
And this picture came out blurry, it kind of dark to get a good pic from the distance I was at, but thses two bucks, go everywhere together, i thought by now they would be in rut and competeing???
Anyway, thanks for looking and for any thoughts or coments.
