I shot a yearling Roe doe today and when I gralloched it there were small blood clots stuck around the pelvis area. They looked like mouse droppings and were quite well set in the membrane covering the tissue. I couldn't see any other issues and it looked healthy before I shot it.
As I haven't shot many Deer I don't know if this is a problem? I've never seen it before but with limited experience it may be something that just happens sometimes? It was a bugger to find as it spotted me before the shot and ran off. It took me about 45 minutes to find it and get it opened up which is longer than the others I've shot (up until now they've just fallen over!). Could that be a cause?
I'd be really grateful for some advice on this. I don't want to eat it if it's something serious but at the same time I don't want to waste it if it's not!
