While scouting today, I found around some bedding these long (3-5", some longer) clumps of deer hair all smashed up and poop shaped....like big Dingle berries.
The hair was obviously deer, has anyone seen these? Are the deer licking themselves while shedding? Is it poop from a coyote that ate a deer? I'm baffled :think:
There was no actual brown poo, just poo shaped hair. Sorry, no pictures.

How did I know you’d have some input on this...lol. Finding poop in Bankhead is like finding a golden nugget. You’ve got something worth some money. We hit the mother load this year.
