Long Fossilized Bone, Peace River Florida

Bone Daddy

Found this nicely-fossilized bone and I can't decide whether it's deer or something else. I seem to recall finding one similar to this a few seasons back, but I can't find it now and I cannot find any reference to it (I don't think I was posting here then). Does anyone know what critter this bone belongs to?

At first glance I thought deer, but then I took a closer look, and now I am not so sure.

It's a deer metatarsal.
