Default Sick Deer

I just retrieved my trail camera and I noticed something wrong with one deer. Any guesses?

Personally, I don't think it's sick. It just looks like it has it's fur messed up. Maybe by running through some heavy brush, mud, or from other deer. It's hard to tell, but something deffinately happened to the deer, doubtful it's a sickness or disease though. But I could easily be wrong.

I too think that the hair just looks roughed up.

It could also be that the deer is getting ready to shed it's winter coat and the summer coat is starting to come in, thus pushing the winter hair up and out at wierd angles.
