What is up with this bucks back

Pre-season 2018 is about to begin, so I was going thru some pics and thinking about the shots/reports I've heard, and trying to determine where to focus my cams and came across this pic.

What is up with this bucks back? The whitish marks going down the spine. Could it be tied to shedding and the spine? Strange.

It's a good spot. Just not today.

I've noticed faint blackish spots with the same pattern in deer I've killed and had directly under my tree. Guessing it's something similar but that is more pronounced than I've ever seen.

Nice buck, just curious what do you figure his age to be and was he a target buck this year? Keeping an eye on him for next season I assume?

I have seen those marks on deer from above in a tree stand, I think some never completely lose their fawn spots, they don't show as much when winter fur is on, just late summer or very early fall. Not scientific at all, just noticed that many times before and it's all I can think of. Nice deer for sure.

Sadly most of my life has been wasted, but the rest I spent hunting, fishing, and trapping...

Interesting thoughts guys, even impressing the ladies. Lol. The wired fence may be as likely as holding onto spots?

Second year for this buck on cam. He added just a little mass. I figured he was 3 last year. Didn’t hunt him this year. See if he makes it.
