Well I see it's a buck for sure. If I had to guess, I would say it is a antler gore from fighting that has got majorily infected. This might actually kill him, if thats what it is. Just a thought....

i don't know but i'd suggest slicing it thin and frying it in some butter and topped with some salt & pepper.

I killed a blacktail in northern california back in 2004 that had a massive growth like that in the front of his neck, right under his chin. It turned out to be a huge pus filled sac, probably from an antler injury. However, the deer was still in velvet, so it would have been from the year before.
