Thread: bean like objects in buck carcasse

    bean like objects in buck carcasse

    I know this is going to be hard without photos, but here goes...

    I shot a youngish roe buck at the weekend. Quite skinny, with somewhat enlarged lymph nodes.

    Scattered around the body cavity, there were large numbers of things that looked a little like jelly beans: size and shape of a baked bean (some a bit larger, some smaller), pinkish grey, firmly squidgy like a fruit pastille. They were filled with lots of closely packed, spherical, whitish granules about 0.5mm across.

    The main concentration of these things was donw the midline on top of the tenderloins and near the kidneys (where you'd expect to find fat building up on a well fed animal). There wre a few elsewhere as well - for instance one or two under the skin on the neck.

    Any ideas?

    Some sort of fly / insect laying eggs - white spherical eggs?

    I don't think so - I'd have thought those would generally be restricted to just under the skin, and these were almost all inside the body cavity.

    Had something very similar recently on a poorly roebuck I shot - a knowledgeable friend told me it was swollen lymph nodes as there are many more than the six you check for in DCS2. Your animal was probably trying to fight of some kind of infection.

    Would the meat be ok to eat then?

    Hard to say without seeing them but think you are describing lymph nodes, and no better not to eat it if there is any doubt.

    most deer I shoot have similar, just like you describe, interestingly most prevalent in deer with an above average number of ticks on them....

    never stopped me putting them in the freezer for personal consumption.

    Interesting you should mention ticks - this one was COVERED. I even picked up a couple while skinning. Hate the little sods.
