    Cole what is with that? is it tick damage?

    That could very well be tick damage. I see it just like that on a few every year. There are ticks in the damaged area, but hell, there are hundreds of ticks on every deer I get, probably thousands, and they don't all show damage like that, so I can't say for sure. I don't know if my area is worse than others, but during deer season after a day of caping, I will literally sweep up a large pile of ticks just off of the shop floor.

    I'd also suggest that the broken hair on the shoulder was probably from dragging the deer out.

    I finally got the really clean out my shop and rearrange things. We are remodeling the downstairs of our house and we have a dumpster in the yard for all the crap that needs to go, so I pitched a bunch of junk in there too and wow what a difference it made.
