Post by: [Blocked] on July 31, 2018, 10:38:48 AM
i saw a fawn in the driveway last night that was almost spot-less!!! i don't think i've ever seen a fawn w/o spots in july up here. heck, they normally keep them for another month. mamma must have been bred in early october. early for WI

yari - good food source, vitamins, protein and nutrients will increase metabolism, all of which are good for a healthy coat and hair growth especially in the young ones. Just a thought. Either way it still alive and well, so far. It's always good to see the fawn getting along without being dinner for a yote or bear.  @--0--0118

The big weather changes we have been having will also stimulate new hair growth. The time of new hair growth varied year to year in my deer.

yea, around here they have it a lot easier than the cabin. more food and really only yotes to dodge. that said, this guy is still way ahead of the game

Funny you mention that Yari.  Last night at dinner a doe popped out with her fawn behind her.  As they trotted across the back of the property at about 150 yards I was surprised that the fawn's spots were really tough to see.  This one was pretty good sized, so maybe relatively early delivery, but still normally can see spots pretty easily on one at that distance this time of year.   Saw a pair with a doe on Sunday on our drive back from KC, still very easy to see their spots at a similar range.  Look at it this way, hopefully they'll be a little bigger/stronger/faster/wiser and more able to steer clear of the predators.
