Looks like this ol' gal has heat rash!
« on: June 22, 2018, 03:28:13 PM »
There are several pictures of this doe showing what appears to be some inflamed skin condition.  Notice behind her ears is red and looks like the hair on both hind legs, where the white is, is gone is also red and inflamed. 
Any "deer doctors" have an opinion as to what's going on?  The bugs and heat are tough, the group pictures usually show their tails at rest but lately they are using them as switches.  I guess that is why the Lord gave 'em tails long enough to get a 'skeeter or yellow fly now and then. ##$%#1119

Tree - what time of the year do they typically drop their fawns down there?
One of God's greatest gifts to us is
the great outdoors - get out there
and enjoy it!

Usually we start seeing fawns in July, but probably more in August and part of September.  The peak of the rut is supposed to be in mid January but the bucks are still chasing does in March after the season.  Usually still see a few spotted fawns at Thanksgiving time. Gestation is supposed to be 200 +/- days.

the ears and tails are on constant motion around here. the bugs drive them crazy. I've seen deer stand in water up to their chin to get away from the bugs

Wonder if she has some sort of mite causing excessive licking, rubbing, etc.?
