    County ? If you're in a CWD county I would call or knock it down if you have DCPs and get it tested. I don't think any areas with known CWD in the LP have had a lot of snow this winter to have a deer looking unhealthy.
    Most likely has nothing to do with Tb or CWD.

    Is it just an illusion or does it's right hind leg look a little jacked?

    It almost looks broken up high and twisted.

    Yea could be. Also probably hard to piss on his gland when its facing straight back. Still not 100% sure if it's just an illusion or not.

    I'm only guessing button buck.

    If forced to guess.....
    Fat reserves are gone. Muscle tissue has been reduced through auto cannibalism (note entire pelvic girdle and spine showing evenly vs just one side if injured ).
    Gelatinous bone marrow transformation going on , meaning recovery is unlikely.

    Puffer belly calves referred to in the old song "early in the mornin down by the station see the little puffer bellies waitin for the train" were starving orphans that had their fates sealed.
    The deer pictured might well be in the same "boat".
