We have a 4 year old buck who is now having extreme hair loss. It started with just a little bit of hair loss and we used pour on ivermectin to treat for mites, in case that was the problem. Please see pics taken of him today *20511:locoha20512:locohai20513:locohair. and offer some guidance.

Or dart him and put permethrin on his back. That's definately mange. Some of our farm dogs caught it from a fox that was hanging around. The one dog killed the fox, then three weeks later he was loosing hair by the clumps. We treated with a flee bath, then kept permethrin on the dogs back. Hair loss eventually stopped and the hair started growing back. My guess is your buck came in contact with a coon or fox that had mange. Permethrin is at tractor supply, not too expensive. It will work. Good luck, start treating asap.
