I found a dead fawn of the year at our club, not long after I got home from deer camp in December. Same thing, somewhat emaciated and its butt was covered in feces. A member had seen it a day or so before in the same area and wasn't concerned about how it acted. But he wasn't that close to it. Doubt that fawn weighed 50 pounds?
Had a slightly larger doe showing the same symptoms out there in late January of 2018, but that one was obviously distressed, as it had wandered up close to people shooting on a range and showed no signs of fear.
I looked for that deer for some time, expecting to find it dead, but never did find it. PGC was called in both cases.
