This is correct. - Middle English Dictionary: S.7 By Robert E. Lewis

> Pricked and sorrel sister. Just after deer.

Sorell syster = A doe in her third year. A sorrel is a young buck in
the third year (http://dictionary.oed.com/cgi/entry/50231229?query_type=misspelling&queryword=sorell&first=1&max_to_show=10&sort_type=alpha&search_id=1tmH-S2uieX-5344&control_no=null&result_place=1).
A buck in its second year is a pricket
In the same reference, a pricket's sister is defined as a female
fallow deer in its second year so a "sorell syster" would be a doe in
her third year.

I hope this helps,
