CWD or just shedding summer coat??

Any ideas guys? My family farm has had some run-ins with CWD in the past few years and a lot of bucks look like this lately. I am hoping it's simply their coats changing to their winter ones and not the other option. Thanks for any of your ideas.

With the exception of the coat, that buck looks pretty healthy yet. I would guess that it's just shedding or something maybe having to do with a parasite or something. I think he'd look much more gaunt and emaciated if he were suffering from CWD.

Thanks for the reply's guys. This is the best deer I have seen on the property this year and not the only one with patches of hair gone. Would like him to be healthy through the season.
