Default Whatís this buck eating???

Any idea what this buck picked up and put in his mouth??
These are from a trail cam we have in Kansas. I zoomed in to show as best I could so the quality is poor.

Not eating a lot on that side of his mouth. Looks like an abscess.

Hickory nut, walnut, large pecan with the hull still on it.

I had a doe eating a couple of pecans like that opening weekend. Sounds like a human biting into a crunchy apple when she ate it.

Looks like he has compaction, with either an infection or abscess.

Those of you who say abscessed tooth are fooled by the photo distortion. Once that gray egg looking thing is in the bucks month, the side of his mouth will be larger.

Post the pick without it being zoomed in please.

If you look under his eye in the 1st picture you can see the swelling the same as in the 2nd pic.

Almost looks like Lump Jaw. I hope I am wrong because if not treated it is almost always fatal

Had a mature buck with an abscess in his jaw on camera one year.
The opposite antler deformed during growth and looked like a starfish.
And his lip didnít look like that..
I donít think thats an abscess.
