When you say a buck poop that was the "size of a pop can", are you refering to the entire thing, or just the individual pellets?
If it were the individual pellets, then that was ONE BIG DEER , as my HORSE'S individual pellets are about half that size, and he weighs in at a little over 1000 pounds!!!
Deer pellets will bind together at certain times of the year depending on their diet. When they are eating "soft mast", it will be more moist, and therefore will "clump" more. When they are primarily browsing then it will be drier, and the pellets will separate as soon as it hits the ground or before even.
There. Now no one can say that jonny5, "Doesn't Know ****' !!!!
