When was the original photo taken?   On the photo the hair looks patchy. Looks to me like she was changing from the winter coat for the summer, not the other way around.  I would think that the winter coat comes in slowly, all over the deer's body, at the same time.

The date stamp on the camera is accurate. I thought it was odd too that she was so patchy, but I've never seen it up close like that before anyway. I was actually afraid it was mange or something at first.

I will have to agree that it is kinda odd to see such a patchy coat on a deer in September.  I see deer at my place quite often, all year around.  I will have to pay closer attention this coming fall.
