Report your deer obserervations here.
« on: September 14, 2018, 09:54:07 AM »
I would like to get a feel for what you are seeing this year regarding adult does and fawns.  For some reason I think there are a lot less fawns than last year.  Last year I observed that the does averaged 1.5 fawns meaning if you saw 2 does, you probably would see 3 fawns.  This year it appears to be a lot less.  For every two does I would see only 1 fawn.  Lots of "dry" does.  Winter was fine so I suspect some other force involved here.  Possibly Bears, Coyote, or perhaps wolves. Maybe a number of the does without fawns were fawns last year that did not get bred. Don't get me wrong, due to the abundance of fawns last year, there are plenty deer, just not as many fawns as I would expect.

Most of the does I get on camera, have twins.
I got one set, that lost mama to a vehicle crash.
They're always hanging out by the barn. So, they have been getting fed.
Mama always said, If you ain't got noth'in nice to say, don't say noth'in at all!
