Two Pics

Post by KsBow » Fri Nov 20, 2015 10:32 am

Here's two pics of young 8 pointers. One shows you what the word "Even" means when talking about racks. The other is a dark big bodied deer with a bare spot on his back. Question is, what do you think caused the bare spot. It's about the size of your palm. I've had both bucks within 6 or 7 yards of me. Let em go and Let em Grow.

Don't know what would cause a white spot on a deer.

Several years ago I watched a big buck cruise through our timber on several occasions. He had a baseball sized spot on his left flank that was white as snow.

He didn't just walk through the woods. He would quickly go from cover to cover stopping at each spot to survey his surroundings. That was the most cautious and alert buck I have ever watched. He passed by in range for my compound bow a few times but never in a spot with any opening I could shoot through.

Dennis, if you look closely, you can see the size of the bare spot on the 2nd buck's back. No hair there at all. I've seen it up close on the hoof. Looks like you shaved that spot.

My first guess would be that he got an injury there, near miss with arrow or bullet or cut on a fence or something and given the location there's no way he could reach it to tend it and clean it by licking it so it became a real mess and when it finally healed over it left that huge scar where no hair can grow. That's worth less than it cost you to read it.
