This picture was taken in the back of Little Caney on Lake Fork. What kind of deer is it?

Coloration fits a fallow fawn or late born whitetail more to me.

Those mentioned; axis, some fallow, and whitetail fawns are really tough to tell the difference in.
I have had them all at a feeder and had a tough time telling the difference. We have some lighter fallows that look just like that

I was thinking fallow at first but everyone I’ve seen had palmated antlers

It’s a spotted fallow, they always have a pretty much solid white line a couple inches above the color line at the belly.


See y’all around the campfire.

Whitetails can show the solid white line also. The fawn in OP appears to have a shorter tail like a fallow though than a whitetail fawn.

based on the way the spots are spaced I would say fallow, Axis normally have more equal spacing between the spots, fallow som will be close together and some further, being that it is a fawn makes it harder to tell.

I'd have to go with whitetail. Fawns around here look just like that.

That’s a whitetail fawn if I’ve ever seen one. Some of y’all have quite the imagination. Look at the critter’s body structure. It’s a baby.

I am also going to say WT. I see the line theory but the OP is fairly grainy.
