doe or buck...

Postby msbadger » Mon Feb 21, 2011 1:54 pm

I'm leaning toward buck due to the distinct head plate in second pic...What do you think? and possible age...that brush pile is a total of 12ft long......

Doe...Very healthy...but the small front leg structure and thin face make me think doe. I'm thinking if it was an adult buck you'd also see more pronounced gland colorations on the hind legs.
But I'm no expert either :-)

I think I will lean toward a buck too. There appears to be dark areas where the antler bases would be. Also, the body seems somewhat more muscular than a doe. I wouldn't bet the farm on it though.
Keep life simple...if you hear hoofbeats, think horses, not zebras.

Buck. If you zoom in around 300% on the second pic, you can see the pedestal where the antler was on his head.
