Out With The Twins
« on: June 17, 2015, 08:03:15 PM »
Saw this big doe with her twins out behind the house this morning before I left for work.  Sorry about the fuzzy image - was trying to get the photo before they skipped out of sight, didn't realize the image quality was set so low - they were standing about 150 yards south of the back deck, so blowing it up the resolution is pretty bad.  Just good to see some healthy fawns.  This is about 50 feet from my new PowerPlant and Imperial Clover plots - seems to be that this old doe has staked her claim there and run the others off for now (If I can just keep the neighbor's cattle out things will be looking good!)  There's a group of 3-4 still hanging together in the alfalfa/grass mix on the north side of the house - hopefully we'll see another couple of fawns from them yet.

Nice pic, MG.  A few years back, I got a pic of a doe feeding her baby in our backyard.

Always nice to see the young ones.  Not many twins ever around here

Got out there to check my cameras this evening, had a three-frame set of momma, then one fawn, then the second one got a nose in the picture on Tuesday evening.  Same three deer as from the earlier post - momma's scarred up right side, particularly that mark on her hip makes her easy to identify.  This camera is only about 25 steps from where they were standing when I took the picture of them yesterday morning - that's momma's turf now.  First rate food, plenty of cover, and good water - yotes will be her main worry, I really need to help her with that part.

I was spraying the weeds in my clover field the other day and kicked up a lone fawn.It barely had its legs under him when he scampered away...I am glad my side by side made enough noise to alert him.By the looks of its size I am assuming he was a June fawn.Of course my Iphone was back at my truck.

I've been worried about hitting one too.  With all of the rain we've been having, I've needed to drive through some areas I normally don't travel in order to stay out of the muck, and that's generally in the tall grass or clover - one of these days I'm bound to come up on one curled up & sitting tight.
