    Unusual red stag shot. Anyone else seen one of these?

    I shot this nice red stag yesterday evening.
    He had this unusual pigmentation under the legs, across the belly and down all the legs to the hooves.
    Totally pure red stag with very trendy hylights.
    One rear leg was a brown color rather than red and it was in its full summer coat ... no odd bits from the molt etc.
    Nice young animal ... guessing 2 or 3 year old.
    Long way from the vehicle and wouldn't you know it saw another stag on the slog out that was miles closer to the truck.
    Never mind he was a few years older and might just be on the roar " to do list".

    Anyone else ever seen one of these?

    So that's my Christmas shopping done for another year ... exactly the same as last year.
    Everyone gets venison again.

    Hope you all get what you wished for.

    The legs looked like a short haired pointers and you will notice in the second image that he had a white blaze on the brisket and up the throat.

    peel forest estate deer herd near Geraldine, has reds that look like that as well as white/red deer so could be from similar genetics,they sell sire stags all over so genetics could have spread that way.

    I've never seen anything like that before

    Could be a Short Hair Pointer - Red Hybrid.
