Time to start looking out for fawns .
« on: May 27, 2015, 09:54:22 AM »
This morning I passed a doe on the side of the road that just stood there looking across the and did not move even when I slowed down and then turned around and passed her a second time . There was more than likely her fawn in the grass near the road .

Your right it's that time of year. A lot of fawn will be dropping in the next two weeks.

I am almost ready to start Brush-hogging.I have a Billy Goat walk behind brush cutter and my farmer uses his tractor.I pretty much stir everything up before he comes in...I definitely do not want to kill any fawns while brush hogging.

I saw one just briefly skittering around mama a couple of weeks ago and have seen a few itty bitty hoof prints out near my food plots.  That seemed pretty early - most for us show up late May/early June.
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Many young-uns showing up. Saw a set of twins nursing. Almost time to lay down first crop hay. I hope I'll be able to see them before I feel them.

I saw another one on the way home today. I had to stop the truck so it didn't come on the road. mamma went the opposite way. the fawn hasn't learned the importance of following her yet
