Can anyone tell me what that is between the two front legs of this young boy.

I believe it's some kind of Cyst that is not life threating.  I remember reading about a doe I think once that had one twice that size or larger and the magazine showed pictures of it.  Once the Cyst burst the deer was able to heal without any major problems.

69Viking is right, it is a type of "soft" growth fairly common in deer and will probably rupture on its own at some point.  If I remember right, this type of growth kills very few deer.
 
Good shooting.

Glad to talk to all of you, but I'd rather be sitting in a tree stand on a cool morning trying not to move so that the bruiser buck directly below me doesn't figure out that I am watching him!

So I should just let him walk? I was planing on putting him down.
