Never seen this before. Looks like the youngster has boobies on his face.

Or he's real old and has magnum bags under his eyes

Possibly infection in the pre orbital gland? That would be the location correct? I have know idea but it seems like glands swell on us more than anything with sickness and infection.

Arterial Worms

Photo via texashunting411.com
Arterial worms: These white round worms live in the arteries of the whitetail deer. Horsefly bites are how a deer contracts the parasite. A deer’s health can be impacted by the worm taking residence in bone structures causing bone deformities and resulting infections. The jaw tends to be the area most commonly affected. Swelling in this area can lead to food being trapped below the tongue which can lead to tooth loss and secondary infections. Deer infected with arterial worms are still safe to eat.

maybe

Shot a doe several years ago that looked like that. When we aged her we cut that area open and it was like a large cut in her inside cheek that was infected and had corn stuck in it. Rather disgusting in all honesty. That deer was donated. . .

I had a spike earlier this year that had the same thing. Not quite as big as these but definitely noticeable. I'll have to check to see if I have a pic.

Found the pic, just don't know how to post it.

One theory I heard was they pick up worms or some kind of bug from eating corn off the ground.
No idea if it’s true.

Those things are full of pu$$
