I learned many years ago that size and shape do nothing to tell you what sex or size deer left the droppings. The only sure-fire way to tell is taste.

In corn country, the doe droppings are positively more bitter.
If deer are eating acorns or beech mast, the buck droppings are more bitter.

When deer are browsing on green growth, the doe droppings are almost sweet while the buck's droppings are nearly neutral.

None of this applies in South Texas where the droppings taste like sweet feed.

I have noticed, early in the fall when muscadines, crab apples and early persimmons are available, all dropping widd mate youw mout putter.
