Yesterday morning, he didn't show up on the patio. Later in the day, we saw him out browsing with the three resident does. This morning they are all bedded down in the front yard. That is much more normal. I guess I can stop worrying.

Bummer, and I was looking forward to some great Venison Fondue.

I would imagine that the tumor abscess was most likely caused by an errant arrow or gun shot from a hunter during open season.

Nature will take its course one way or the other.

Injury could be natural causes or bad shot but deer are hearty animals, surviving things that we humans would not. If you have 3 resident does he is likely hanging around until they come into estrus and are ready for breeding. The poor health could be confirmation of this as bucks will forget about everything but breeding during the breeding times (rut.) They'll not eat, ignore humans, cross roads without looking both ways (Lol) and hang out in odd places just waiting for the doe to be ready. Chances are it'll run its course and he'll disappear when it does.

If that deer really wants to warm up, this would do the trick. YUM!

If you were to put food out for him around here you would have to set some time in the local jail. They don't like that, it's called baiting. I know your were not planning on shooting him but, they wouldn't care and you would get in trouble anyway, if you got caught. If it's not season you can't shoot it, that would get you into even bigger trouble. You can't even eat the ones you hit with your pickup unless the game warden comes out sees the deer and signs off in it but, they never want to do that. The deer are so thick in my yard they have defecated right on my house. And in the bad winters they ate all my pine trees to death. Stupid deer. I'm not denying there right to exist. I just think we have too many of them in this area that's all.
