Wow, that is wild! My first thought was a wire fence, but not sure what it could have been.

my best guess would be going under a wire fence and not quite ducking its head down low enough, but then again it could of went to the barber and just is trying out a new look.

On the under hand, I would have to say thats a yearling buck that has shed. I thought that right away in the first pic, because body and head just look like it is a buck and it does look like there are some fluffed up darker hair patches on its head where its small antlers had been or it could just be a button buck, but a doe would have a rounded top of its head, not flat.

i second the thought on the deer being a buck...i noticed how dark the tarsal glands are and then saw what was already mentioned (what looks like a spot where his horns were)

Another thing that i thought of was it could of happened from a fight. If it is a buck, it wouldn't be anything for a buck to rub his horns against his face.

It does look like a Yearling Buck with the slightly rasied guess is it either has the Mange or could it have rub the hair off from sticking its head inside a feeder or possibly a fence with the square shaped openings and rub the hair off?

You don't have one of those Antler Traps set up where You take some fencing and shape it in a V-shape and put corn in the center in hopes of the Bucks snagging and loosing their Antlers in it to find?...just an after-thought

Looks like someone has been leading it around with a halter too much and wore the hair off. Just a guess

It's a wild animal.....there's tons of things that could have happened to it. Maybe a bad encounter with bigfoot?

nice shots, it is not camera shy that is for sure. Look around its eyes the circles, what kind of flash are you using? Is it an old gun powder type flash lol It may have got to close.

no clue what really happened.
