I shot a roe doe this morning that I've been after since first seeing her just before the end of the buck season. The reason she had to go was that she hadn't formed a full winter coat. She was quite ginger in appearance with tufts of winter coat in various places. She seemed healthy enough though, no limping, no strange behaviour and no abnormalities inside that I could see when I gralloched her. She was quite an old animal, 6 yrs + I'd say. Could the pelage issue be age related?
