    Hi Skywull

    Unusual colour for them at this time of year but there used to be quite a lot of stags that colour down the Tweed. When I lived up there I was told that it was the result of importing one particular stag into the park at Dawyck. I believe it was from the island of Kerama in Japan where the majority of the animals were black. I have shot quite a few animals that colour and in August their black coats seemed quite soft to the touch.
