What do you make of this????

Captured a couple of pics last year that are kind of interesting. Thought I would post them to get feedback on causes.

1st is a doe that has a nasty chunk taken out of her backside. The 2 pics are a month apart and she seems ok other than missing the hide.

The 2nd is a buck with a huge bulge on his left side. Month later bulge is gone and buck seems to be in good shape.

That there is the buck that walked broadside at 8 yards on the first morning on stand.......along with three other bucks that morning!
The doe looks like she barely got away from one of those 20 or 30 coyotes I saw, that must of hurt.

Still trying to figure out why you passed on that one. Don't blame you though after seeing the pics of the bruisers in the area, and it was still early in the hunt.

Even though the growth had disapeared he still looked a little sick and I was planning on eating the deer.
The butcher commented on how big the pieces of meat were from the deer I took and it was one of the best tasting deer ive had. Maybe the feed or the fact that it sat in ice water for 3 days.

I'm not so sure that the last buck pictured is the same buck that is pictured with the tumor. The right hand side horns look slightly different, although it is hard to tell for sure from the pictures.

I assume coyote attack, like what was said above, is what caused the problem with the doe.
