Fawns
« on: August 25, 2018, 06:57:08 AM »
Currently watching two fawns out in the side yard.  They are bedded down right out in the open, and it's raining hard.  You would think they would bed down under a tree or bush.  They seem totally unconcerned about the rain.

Louie - I had a tiny fawn a few years ago doing that in my back yard too during a downpour - not what I would have expected.

Ben, I was hoping to do the same thing with a little doe last spring.  She kept hanging around my place.  At one point, I got about 20 yds from her.  After a while, we stopped seeing her, I figure coyotes, or a car got her.

I didn't realize how hard rain was on fawns the first 30 days. a 1" rain the first 30 days takes out as many fawns as predators do.

QDMA has some great info on this. anyone else belong to QDMA?

Yeah, a lot of damp/cool weather can be tough on the fawns & other critters too, even domestic cattle calves.
Don't belong to QDMA but have bought a couple of their books - they do provide some really interesting info.
