But there were a couple does that were chestnut brown. Why different colors? This time of the year I usually see the deer coats gray. I was surprised to see two other big does being brown in a group of gray coated deer. I did not see antlers and these deer were withing 40- to 50 yards from me.
Well, some girls are vain about their appearance, and others aren't. Or she ran out of her "natural instincts hair coloring by Clairol". You might try leaving some out for the rest of the ladies, might be a good draw....And because there is no food value, not bait either!
The only real difference between a good tracker and a bad tracker is observation. All the same data is present for both. The rest is understanding what you are seeing.
