Took the mutant doe to the DNR today and after several junior biologists looked at it they called out their big gun who took a time out from his budgetary phone conference. He skinned the ribs back and removed the scar tissue and revealed what looked like a partially healed over small .22 caliber bullet hole. Looks like a poacher took a pot shot at her that did not kill the deer. Apparently that small of a bullet even in the right place will sometimes not collapse both lungs and allow the deer to partially recover. The secondary infection from the bullet is what was killing the deer. The swollen jaw was from swollen lymph nodes fighting the infection. They aged her at 4.5 years old and figured the wound was a couple of weeks and old and that she was on her last leg. She was likely feverish and starving when I shot her which explains the odd behavior and skinny body. Probably only deer that ever walked in front of me during deer season that was actually happy it did.
