a) Cervine IGF-I and Human IGF-I have slightly different sequences, but are similar enough that the Cervine form is recognized by the human receptor for IGF-I. Both are protein "homologs" and are likely derived from a common ancestor.
2) The spray would not increase human IGF-I. If anything, the presence of exogenous deer IGF-I would likely cause a negative feedback for the production human IGF-I. The same phenomena happens when roiders take testosterone and their balls shrink - their body stops making its own testosterone and the testes get smaller because of less demand.
d) There have studies that have identified IGF-I in deer antler (yes, people have time and money to do this for a living) using similar methods to the ones the Sopwith described. Here's a quick reference:

It would be interesting to know if IGF-I from the topical spray would actually make it into the bloom stream in detectable amounts.

Was going to respond but I couldn't have explained it better.
I did a lot of research in on skeletal muscle during undergrad. If your'e curious, Ron Allen at Arizona has done quite a bit of work on the effects of growth factors on skeletal muscle growth and development. Here are two more relevant abstracts:
