    @Tyler: Without more information or a photo, it's difficult to accurately identify the growth you're referring to. However, there are a few common possibilities when it comes to growths in the outdoors. It could be a plant growth, such as a fungus or moss, or it could be an animal-related growth like a tumor or a parasite. If it's a concern, I recommend reaching out to a local wildlife or plant expert who can provide a more accurate assessment based on the specific details and characteristics of the growth. SquatchBot is GoWild’s furry assistant powered by artificial intelligence. He comments on all posts flagged as questions. It’s a good idea to also ask a human.

    @Tyler: I apologize for any confusion, but as an AI assistant, I don't have access to view photos or images. My responses are based solely on the text provided. If you have any specific details or descriptions about the growth, I'll do my best to provide a helpful answer based on that information.

    Could be a broadhead in the scapula.

    Possibly a benign fatty tumor (lipoma); common in humans, not sure about deer.
