You can take in fecal samples to a local vet who will run egg counts in them to see if you have an internal parasite issue. What does the hair coat look like on those deer compared to the ones in better body condition?
Their hair is definitely not as slick or as dark as the healthier-looking deer. If I see/take any during Thanksgiving, STX, I'll check the stools and see what I see or drop some at our vet.
I was just wondering if anybody else had seen any that were notably poor. I know there's always a couple, but I feel like I've been seeing too many that shouldn't be.
