    Look up Bezoar stone.

    I've found all sorts of stuff in deer rumens over the years, usually related to litter, but never a true Bezoar.

    How old would you say the deer was? Do you still have the jaw?

    Are you going to keep it? I would be happy to pay postage and make a donation to a charity if you were willing to pass it on?

    They're called Enteroliths. They are stomach juice/enzyme concretions around a foreign body. The fallow that mine came from had 3 in it plus a load of rope a plastic wrap.

    That's very kind of you Doug, I'll send my address and it goes without saying that you are welcome to come for a look around any time that you are in this neck of the woods. Best wishes, Glyn

    That's a really interesting find. I've heard of bezoars but never seen one, other than some dodgy looking examples on eBay

    Glyn, apparently they're full of magic powers, so hold on to your hat

    If anyone else finds one I'd be happy to buy it - would be good for my talk in the village.

    Hopefully it will bring me good karma giving it away ,I had a lucky morning when I shot the two fallow does and long may that kinda luck continue .

    I'm counting on it having magic powers! I hope that it's better than those magic beans that I bought from the quaint Romany travelling lady with the beard!

    i have found a few this season, there was a good article in a recent Deer Magazine about Enteroliths and Bezoars. Fallow seem to be quite prone to them.

    Still on the lookout for one if anyone is willing to donate/sell one.
