ETD that is weird especially on both does in the same area. At first I thought mange, then it looks like some scarring so you may be right on the fence idea. I would have thought other areas might show some hair loss too?? It might be worth having a vet look at them if you have one that won't charge just to look at them.

The last pic close up seems like there is some tear lines or scratches. Maybe a barb wire fence along their travel route that they walk constantly. I don't know.

This area is where we make hay in the summer and it is fenced in and they are in here ALL the time...and they never seem to jump the fence they seem to always go under...

I would guess some kind of parasite. It is either making them lose hair, or causing an itchy spot that the deer are rubbing bald...

I was thinking parasite too, maybe flea's, ticks or chiggers. something like that,
I guess the thought of a fence wound is the more obvious but I don't think this was caused by a fence..
