Default Buck and Doe POOP

Is there really a difference between buck and doe poop? Poeple say that buck poop is lumpy and that doe poop is little balls. It seems to me it should all be the same. I honestly can't think of any mammal that you can tell the sex by scoping out the poop!!!

You can tell the difference. Same with turkeys. The larger the dropings, the larger the deer. Doe ussaly have small round droping, Like rabbits but only bigger. Bucks have more clumped pellets, but it really depends on what they eat.


Guns cause crime, like flies cause garbage.

Yep, they say that buck poop is clumped and does poop pellets. Just like 3030 said, you can tell the difference between turkeys by their poop, J-poop=tom, other=jake of hen. So why not deer?

I have read that the are both the same. The smaller the pellets the harder the food was to digest. It makes sense. Besides, I've seen gobbler poop that was no J-hooked. You never know until you know for sure.

Letty let us put it this way, the buck I killed last year when I was field dressing him had little round pellets, there is a lot of talk of supposedly being able to tell, but it all depends upon what they are eating and not thier sex, but as Timbercruiser said &quot;buck taste like chocolate and doe taste like vanilla.&quot; A really big bucks will also be more crunchy, especially if he has been eating peanuts!

TIMBER, remind me not to EVER scout with you.

ELK, No, I didn't notice. I guess I'll have to look more closley next time I get the urge to go beyond simply identifying droppings as coming from a deer.

Seriously though (actually, Timber I was serious about that too), I've read 2 books on Whitetails that say the way the poop looks is dependant on the type of food eaten.

-A loose pile of pellets = eating regular forage plants
-A solid mass of pellets that stay stuck together = legumes like beans
-If there bite marks in it, then TimberCruiser has been there ahead of you.
-If it's been poked apart with a stick, Elkhunter is around somewhere.
-And if it looks really smooshed, wipe your boot off. You've gotten too close.



Keep 'em all in the Bull.

I had heard that buck poop taste like chocolate, but the truth is doe poop only looks like chocolate;it taste like crap. And as far as telling them apart? Sometime time ago I suggested that you study your own crap,noting its shape and texture; now check out some female crap,noting the same. See any difference? If it's size only, then this just tells you which is the bigger ass it came from. Big crap,big deer;little crap, little deer,end of story. Clumped or pelleted might indicate what was eaten,but not the sex of the deer.
