BW>> I've seen deer look similar here in NC. Usually in Aug/Sept time frame.

Looks to me like the standard issue ears.

I can't tell real well from the pics. Has it been real hot there? It might be hot spots? Call your local game warden or University and ask a biologist. Maybe take the pic by and show them. Good luck I hope it isn't CWD.

Unless Im blind I don't see any ears. Must be frost bite.   Its also hard to tell but It just might be getting its red coat for the summer.

 I have read nothing about hair loss in deer/elk from CWD,he could have mange??Maybe the ticks and chiggers are eating him alive and he is rubbing all the hair off trying to scratch?

Could it be him just changing colors from the dark winter hair to the red summer hair??

I see ears but I don't see dead people.

I've seen deer like that before. Used to be a doe that bedded up in the flower bed where I lived at in Milwaukee, she looked like that. Come fall she looked "normal again.
I think I have a couple of pictures. I'll find them and send post them. She looked really funny when she was wet, all slicked down with bald spots.

This deer has the same hair loss.   I took this one last July.  The deer was later harvested and was completely normal.  I'm sure it's the heat and shedding that makes them look like that.  I guess they could get the "mange [sp] " too.

All the hair loss is maybe from to high of a power flash on him all the time. Just burning the hair off. ( LOL!! ) I have seen this on a lot of deer. If memory serves me, the game warden said that they believe it is there diet.

A guy with one of my cams said he got a buck (pix) with no hair along his whole neck and side.  He said the pix shows no hair only, no sores, etc.  The Mo. Conservation is looking at the pix but i've not heard what they said yet.  He watched this deer eat apples and get his pix taken and said it acts normal (not sick)  When I get a copy, I'll post the pix if it shows the baldness pretty well.

I've never heard of bald deer tho, they get Mange?
