I gotta admit, I did not sleep in a Holiday Inn Express last night but if I was to take a guess.... I'd say she is a "lucky survivor" from the past deer season. :sniper:

I've tried to enlarge and zoom in on the picture and I tend to believe that it is a buck that has dropped his rack. The scarrs on his back are from his antlers being used to scratch with and where they rub while moving through the timber and crossing under fences. I have taken quite a few that have had the same bald spots on their shoulders. Of course since I am a MAN I could be totally wrong according to my wife.

How about crawling under fences?
I have seen several out here similarly scarred and that was my thought.

Could be anything. I get a lot of pictures of deer with scars and bald spots. Nature is a rough place it’s not a petting zoo out there

Well if it's a buck and he's hanging around all them doe's, that alone could account for loss of hair:hysterical::hysterical:

I, too, think it is a buck.
This season, we noticed an unusual number of bucks with a bare spot in that exact place.
Looks like you can start sheddin' if you haven't already.

thats just harsh
funny but harsh

i would say it was a wound of some kinda as well maybe somethign as simple as a bite or scrach that he scraped open till it was raw skin at one point. don't look as if it has or will have any affect except making identify him or her easy later.

I'll just about always go with car or fence, and that should cover most scars like that.....
