    This was a hind i shot in Mull last year (no sika on Mull), the spots were mainly on her hind quarters, she was an older hind, as you can see the one on my right is a calf and it had no spots.

    I think it's likely just normal red variation ,seen similar a couple of times, it's like some of the spots from juvenile coat has just continued to show. A bit like seeing really dark hinds or pale coated deer. I hope the pic was taken from the ATV or you would of worked up a sweat dragging that haul home!
