Disease Spotted Shed Hunting Fibroma

The Disease Spotted Shed Hunting was fibroma where warts can be bad on the affected deer.

disease spotted shed hunting turned out to be fibroma. I have been getting pictures of a doe that has spots all over her body, she doesn’t look good at all.

A Disease Spotted Shed Hunting

I was asking wildlife biologist Grant Woods of GrowingDeerTV what he thought it was and he said it looked like Fibroma, a wart like growth that is a disease in deer. He sent me this link on Fibroma and I found it really interesting. Fibroma disease in deer isn’t that common for does to get it occurs more often in bucks. Someone on Facebook asked if this doe should be taken out of the herd if given the chance, and even though in most cases the warts dry up and fall off I would take her out if I could. This particular doe  has a nasty looking sore on her back that she has had for some time. I just think she should be taken out but then again you never know she might be just fine in the long run.

big buck sheds found recently

Big Buck Sheds Mike found on a recent trip.

I have seen a lot of nice bone being found lately shed hunting. I got out yesterday and checked my camera and put out trail cameras and some corn for the whitetails behind the house . I had one picture of a small looking buck that looked liked he had shed and a few small bucks that still had their antlers.  Sometimes it feels like you are looking for a needle in a haystack. I concentrated on field edges and bedding areas and I would have bet money I would have found at least one but that’s the way it goes. It may still be a little early but when you see all those big antlers being found everywhere it makes you think the bucks in your area have dropped too but you never know. I had a great day out in the woods never the less. I am planning on doing some more shed hunting this week. I am determined to find some bone, I have got a lot of walking to do yet. There is a big cedar thicket right behind my house that I want to check out really good. It is a prime bedding location and I would just about bet I’ll find something in there hopefully a big set of massive antlers.

    Now that is a nice pair of sheds!
    I have never been lucky enough to find both sides. I always end up finding just one side. I think you just convinced me to go shed hunting this weekend!
