I've always heard of course the clumps are bucks and the larger pellets doe and the smaller pellets are yearlings. No science just hearsay.
If all conditions would be right, you'd find a bedding area where the ground or snow is favorable for tracks and bed imprints. If the larger bed somewhat removed from the others, with larger hoofprints leading away and a clump of pellets associated with these (buck) tracks, and the other smaller and smallest beds and tracks are associated with their respective pellets, (doe and yearlings) then maybe you could tell. But never for certain.
A big five and a half yr. old doe might leave behind an impressive clump. Who knows?
