Deer pellets: That type of stool is called scybala. it is from lack of dietary fiber and can cause lots of constipation, bloating and abdominal pain as well as prolonged difficult elimination. Take a bulk agent daily ( Konsyl-right before eating your evening meal) and try to get more grains and fiber in your diet and the problem will resolve.
