    Default What is wrong with this deer

    Trail camera photos of 3 deer,taken 28.Aug.2020.

    The deer i would need some opinions please is the one with red circle.

    The deer has flat head(as bucks do)the doe on the first picture has round head(as does do).
    The deer also has 2 little dots on its head-where antlers should start(pedicle).
    The deer is quite large and old looking-so it is not a fawn .

    Unfortunately i can not see clearly gender ID on pictures.

    Is this a buck without antlers (then why ???) or.............opinions?

    I think it's yearling buck,just late developing. It's hard to tell from the pictures. You're right about it having a larger than normal body,but,I've seen that many times. Given a couple of years,he'll be a monster of a buck.

    Two well placed ticks that look like antler nubs?

    I'm leaning on big old doe. Body looks bigger than the 4 pointer and theres no velvet, Big buttons like them transgender/hermaphrodite freak deer or a button buck.

    It's possible. Hermaphrodites are both male and female, and very rare.
    OTOH, given that we see antlered does being reported most years, why not an antlerless buck, due to a hormonal condition or genetic anomaly?
    Very interesting.

    its definitely not an older deer its a yearling buck IMO. Look how lanky that neck is and how big the ears are, not an older deer. All 3 of them are probably a family group just missing the older doe from the photo. 1.5 yr old spike that momma didnt kick out of the group yet.

    That's what I thought also, a fat Doe.

    Thanks for the input,from either side of the spectrum.

    This thing puzzles me so i spent some time on my photos today-went thru year worth of photos from the area i had few cameras on..

    Here is the "same"deer -from last year.Spot is 150 yards from the other camera...........
    Last year i think i never registered this ,likely chalking up for the deer to be a fawn........not so much anymore.
