Deer season is upon us. For this week's podcast we are going to be discussing wart-like growths, called fibromas, on white-tailed deer. Biologist Bob Cordes, from the Main Department of Inland Fisheries and Wildlife, is our guest speaker sharing the causes of these warts, how they impact infected animals and what to do if you harvest a deer with fibromas.
