I shot a roe doe yesterday and when I performed the gralloch I notices some odd marks on the stomach. I got it finished and laid it out on the ground for a better look. it appears to have some kind of blood marks under the surface, they almost look like stretch marks I guess. I also notices that part of the intestine was a purple colour which looked a bit odd to me.
no idea if it could make any difference but it was shot in the neck just below the head.
the beast otherwise looked fine body wise and I found no swollen glands.
any idea what would cause this? and in your opinion is it ok to eat? its hanging in the chillier just now and plan on eating it.
thanks in advance for your views
