Deer with a tongue ring!

Reply
A guest killed a deer this past weekend on our lease. The deer looked old, had a very poor 4 point rack, and was skinny! We are on DMAP and when they went to take the jaw bone out, they were shocked! This deer had a tongue ring.....well, sort of.

We can't figure out what the round piece is. It has lots of hair and other stuff in in. The sharp looking bone was lodged in the ring.

We are brining the tongue and other items to DWLF to see if they can maybe identify what those objects are.

Any thoughts/guesses out there???

Yes, that round thing was around his tongue. It was almost cutting off the circulation I imagine! Im sure eating and especially drinking water was hard for the guy to do. He is another picture.

It looks like a piece of a sugarcane stalk.

i agree w/ 10_foe it looks like either a sugar cane stalk or some other type stalk of some sort. must have been hard for the deer to eat/drink.

We hunt 40 minutes north of Alexandria. Not too much sugar cane in those parts!

Will be interesting to see what they say. Something he ingested I would guess!

Is that bone or some form of plant matter?

it had hair stuck inside of it and the tong was starting to swell and the ring was trying to grow into the tong. we have had several people all agree that it looked like the ring of an armadillo's tail not sure why he would have been messing with a pile of armadillo bones someone suggested that it may been like of calcium? we still have it in tack in freezer
