I see deer all the time walking through my yard and looking forward to my first hunting season.

Some of the deer I've been noticing have some spots of hair loss. It looks like when a dog has a hot spot or something where the hair falls out in clumps in just a few spots.

What would cause this? If i see deer like this on a hunt, are they healthy and safe to eat?

thanks.

Shedding summer coat
Soon it will be a short darker brown rather than the longer red tinge you see in the hair now.
