Wart/Tumor
Looks like to me it is Warts or a tumor of some sort. I would think if it was an injury of some kind that the right side of his rack would be all messed up too.... I shot a deer a few years ago that had a big puss pocket on his left fron shoulder and the right side of his rack was smaller less wide the the left side.Just my 2 cents!

Tumors
I shot a buck that had a few of these when I was in college in Natchitoches. I cut one off and showed it to a wildlife biologist on campus and he said it was a type of tumor that is more prevalant in young bucks, and that the deer was fine to eat. We also called Dr James Kroll (Dr Whitetail), at SFA in Texas and explained it to him, and he said the same thing. We cut 1/2' or so into the meat at each one and then got to cooking.

agree
I also think it is just those warty like growths that deer sometimes get. If that does turn out to be what it is the good news is it doesn't affect the meat and it isn't really a problem for the deer.
