Can you tell the sex of a deer by their dropings?

Also can you tell a buck fawn from a doe fawn at a 100 yards?


Researchers have shown that the shape, color, size, etc., of a deer’s droppings don’t accurately indicate the deer’s gender.  

It would be very difficult to determine if a fawn was a male or female at 100 yards and depends the maturity of the fawn, etc.
