When I took this pic, I thought it might be a red deer. But now I think this might be a Sambar?

The hair makes it look like possibly a young waterbuck?

John! That's an odd looking critter! It looks like it has stripes! Can't wait to see what it is!

Not a waterbuck, waterbucks have horns ( don't grow back), that buck in the picture has antlers he is growing out, looks like an eld's deer

I'm going with either Eld's Deer or Sambar....tough to tell for sure from that angle.

I'm not sure what it is, but some of the possibilities require permits to harvest, so you need to be cautious about harvesting any unknown deer. If JP checks in, he should be able to identify it, if it's a Rusa or Sambar. I think that Eld's Deer, Barasingha, and White Lipped Deer require permits.

too big for a hog deer. Maybe Rusa. This is outside POC on the Powderhorn ranch.

I found a specific reference to Sambar on the Powderhorn Ranch in the book Exotics On The Range. I would bet that's what you saw.
