    I’ve had few having those last few years. Is it common? What causes it?

    I think it's caused by a virus, kinda like a wart.

    Warts. They will likely fall off by next spring. Have watched several over the years and they almost always loose them when they show back up on cam the next year.

    I think they are like warts.

    Hunted a farm for a few years that was covered up in them they eventually went away over time.

    This is a good article on it. I had a deer two years ago way worse than the first one in the article but not nearly as bad as the other one. Happened from Nov to mid April (see pic). It was bad enough that I considered shooting him out of season if I saw him to ‘put him out of his misery’ but then saw this article. He disappeared until October and he came back fat and with a very nice rack. You could see where a few of the larger warts had been but hardly noticeable. Wouldn’t have believed it if I hadn’t seen it. Neighbor got him 7 months later in mid Nov.
