deer dropping identification

3 posts in this topic

i have heard from several sources that you can tell the gender of a deer from their droppings, they say a bucks is lumped together and a does/fawns is more scattered. Is this true?

I've heard that pellet size may be an indicator. But, clumped pellets or scattered pellets usually reflect what the deer has been eating. Clumped droppings mean green stuff--grasses, leafy browse, forbes, etc. Scattered droppings mean browse such as twigs.

You can tell what a deer has been eating but not the sex of a deer from the size or shape of them.Mny people for years thought that you could tell and from all the research I have done I have never to this date found a article that stated you could.Maybe one day.
