Default Do deer poop in clumps?

From Chet at the other place.

I had a guy ask me why bucks poop in clumps and does poop in pebbles.........
I thought all deer poop in pebbles.
but this guy says no, bucks poop is clumped up pebbles, I told him "NO, you're seeing sheep poop"
but he insists..... "bucks poop in clumps"
maybe his bucks have swollen prostates??????
could it be diet? water consumption?
lookin for help here guys, not just scientific explanations...... but opinions guesses and funky ideas.......

Funny you should ask this question, because one time EPEK took a dump inside my wall tent.

Elk poop in clumps too..... although I don't have pics to prove it.... just what I've seen and stepped in first hand. I don't have any cool crappy stories either.

It is all about what deer/elk are eating. early in the season they have a lot of clumps cause there diet is a lot of greens. Later in the season they have pellets cause they are eating dried grasses and drier foods.

You can tell a lot about a deer from its scat, too. Most of the time, it's little pellets about the size and shape of a jellybean. You can tell deer scat from rabbit scat because the rabbit scat is usually in round balls, not ovals.

Deer scat can come in two forms, pellet or cluster. Which form is left depends on what the deer has been eating.

a cluster of pellets usually occurs when the animal has been eating moister food.

A carefully crafted "log" of Hershey's chocolate baking chips. Good one... See the "overspill" around the tracks? Just kidding... I dont' know... I'd guess probably some sort of deer or elk fecal matter.... must be munching on wet green stuff for it to be compacted like that...
