Ok, here’s the deal. The last 2 bucks my sons and I have harvested have had the lungs attached to inside of rib cage. By attached, I mean we have to cut all the way out. I’ve never seen that before. Whitish/yellow colored membrane attaching to the cage walls. What gives?? I’ll post a picture tomorrow. Anyone else seeing this?? There are no visible wounds, like they have been shot previously. Both deer are about 4-5 yrs old. Older age, sick, Diseases????AnonymousDecember 21, 2017 at 4:05 amPost count: 1908
Yes it is a form of pneumonia. Its not uncommon, and as far as i know they are fine to eat. My last doe had this too.pdoghunterParticipantDecember 21, 2017 at 5:04 amPost count: 274

Yes it is pneumonia. As long as the rest of the meat looks & smells OK I would use it.
Shot a buck that had been shot with a front leg broke 1 1/2 hours earlier and he smelled not good. What does everyone else do with something like this?? I can probably use meat thru Jerky, but not sure about anything else.
