    He's lucky that's plainly claw marks where a mt.lion jumped on him ..... Lol

    Looks like warts to me, which might be a genetic condition. .....OR.... the Buck placed "fake" warts on his back so no one would shoot him......:D

    I believe his fur is just ruffled from his antlers digging in while he’s bedded and grooming his flank.

    Looks like he has been bedding down in a cocklebur patch.

    It just looks like the hair is ruffed up like other have said.
    Could be from a cupacabra they attack from the rear. Mountain lions go for the throat. LOL.
