Bolt action

Found this.. thoughts?

Found this skinning that doe from today. It was lodged in the skin on one of the hams and had to be cut out, but wyant all the way through to the meat. Measures probably about an inch. I think it's fiberglass, maybe aluminum. My guess is that she got bumped by a car and this was a souvenir. For the meat, no smell, just that yellowish film in that area. Avoid that area and salvage the rest, or is it a total loss?

Just an inch extra around it and you will be fine.

Few yrs ago I had a similar case and the meat in the injured area was all white. The rest of the muscle was fine.

Odd. I’d just trim a little. We overthink meat sometimes and often if it smells and looks good there shouldn’t be a concern.

interesting,the front shoulder of my buck had a yellow discoloration like that. I thought it was from possibly hitting a tree on his death run. I have not cut into the shoulder yet to see if there is anything foreign in there.
