Hello fellow deer farmers! *I've posted a picture of a buck fawn that has lumps on his face, like warts or some kind of growth. *He is eating well and doesn't demonstrate any change of normal behaviour. *What do you think it is? *Is it something I need to be concerned about? *I have several other buck fawns in the pen and he's the only one like this. *Let me know what you think.

Yes it looks like warts and they will go away with age.* Nothing to have much concern about.

what Jack said....


I had a 1.5 year old buck with a irregular line of big warts along 20" of his ribcage. They fell off this winter and left a small scar.
