Is there something wrong with this deer or is this simply how the coat is? Can someone let me know what causes this and what I can do to eliminate the problem?



Thanks,

Looks like a typical summer coat to me. Perhaps a bunch of ticks in that area but that buck looks very healthy to me.

Is this your first year with a high fence ranch? Reason I ask is stated in one of the questions above: how do you plan on treating it? Seems a weird question to ask about treating deer like they are livestock. The second picture all but confirms the diagnosis of a high fence owner or breeder, but is this your first year or just not very experienced? Not trying to rub you the wrong way, seriously. Just giving a little background will help people give more education as needed.

I don't think it's a problem. I see it a lot. Usually means nice antlers.

Worried it was mange, looks worse than it does on all of the other animals. No offense taken I will take all of the education I can get...
