Thread: Roe in winter coat.....a bit early?

    Roe in winter coat.....a bit early?

    I've seen 2 differant does in or going in to winter coat already. One was well into it although not a thick yet but clear gourget (spelling) patches showing the other was front half winter back half summer again with clear gourget patches. One was also in a group of 2 does, 3 kids and a buck. Is it early to be seeing them in winter coats or normal?

    Maybe they know something we don't...

    We got our first big dump of snow a year ago 2 months from now (think it was around 24th Nov), hard to believe isn't it?

    Maybe like i say i dont know when you'd expect them to change but seems early.

    I thought maybe it was just me, saw a doe the other night with a buck. She was in her winter coat.
    Did begin to wonder wether I was seeing things.

    Shot a young buck about 2 weeks ago with gourget patches coming through, looked like he was just coming out of winter coat, as in all patchy.
