    Looks to me like an old very healthy doe but check out the other photos you have and check out the hocks on the back legs. Usually dark scent glands say its a buck and light color its a doe.

    Can you pull up those pics at the bottom of your original photo? Those might offer up more info as to it being a buck or doe.

    I can when I pull the card the next time. I used a reader on my phone and only took screen shots of the certain ones. Seem like there was a lot of activity on all cameras Dec. 2nd.

    100% looks like pedicles to me. Could just be a shed doe

    Sometimes they will have tufts of hair that can fool ya sometimes. Sure is suspicious.

    That's what I was thinking also but I wasn't sure. Seemed like a huge body for the doe in our area but also it was pretty early for the normal shed time. I will check the camera this weekend and see if there are anymore of it.
