Yes i have shot deer with calcified fawns but they didn't look like your images. Mine were a solid mass, your images look more like it has died and started to decompose. Out of interest, what time of year was the deer shot?
My friend shot it on the 23/12/07. I'd never seen it before but he had quite a few times and said it would turn solid in the end. But I do agree with you there that it does look more like its decomposing.
Never seen it before. What condition was the doe in? And would you enter the doe into the food chain or not?
Difficult to answer. If it is truly mummified - almost dried out and leathery, I'd say yes. If it looks like it is decomposing and smells then probably no. You'd have to consider the behaviour of the doe and the condition of the rest of the carcass.
This question actually comes up in the DSC1 manual - they recommend incineration of the doe carcass as there is no way to know if blood poisoning has occurred in the doe carrying the dead foetus, therefore it is unfit for human consumption.
If there is no associated peritonitis, local nodes ok and the carcase sets then I would eat it. Obviously if lots of local reaction then I wouldn't. I've sent plenty of cows to slaughter containing mummies and they have all passed meat inspection.
