Those marks almost look like scars. Our deer out here get lots of tick's but they don't get marked by them that I know of. Nice photos!

great pics!

Nice bucks!

Looks like battle scars to me, or possibly a Cat?

Could be from a fence?

Whatever caused them, it sure look slike scars!

Ticks will cause the hair to "lump up" where the tick is.

I saw a bach. group just like this on my way home yesterday. Have been seeing lots of deer out at all times of the day lately. Funny how they can disappear as soon as season opens.

Is it me or does that scar on his shoulder look like it runs on back into his mid section?

The velvet bucks I have been seeing in Pa have about as much antler as from the brow tines down on those deer. I did see one huge buck in NJ a couple days ago though.
Nice pics, Thanks.

Those deer are gonna be bruisers. They still have another two months or so of growth. Rock and roll.
