first fawn
« on: May 24, 2019, 06:21:22 PM »
I ran up to the cabin to meet a guy from the state and the feds to see if they would help w/ the runoff into my creek at the cabin. the feds are in love w/ my creek, so I figured i'd see if I could get some green backs. NOT. they are at least 2 years out before they would even consider it. it was worth a shot

it was a slop hole up there. no way to plant anything. I went through all the implements, so i'm ready. I saw several deer. they really looked rough after this winter. very thin. I saw one doe that might have kept her fawn. the good news is even the young deer made it.


about 5 miles from my place I saw a doe in a cut cornfield acting odd. I slowed in case another was crossing the road. then I notice a fawn barely as tall as the corn stubble bouncing next to mom. it was only a couple days old. they are so incredible. from day one, it's game on. i'm always amazed any survive up there w/ all the predators

speaking of predators, my field had bear land mines all over. they are eating grass to clean out after the hibernation and my place is be best and only grass around. now they need to leave in case any fawns are dropped

keep your eyes open. fawns are hiding all over

I saw the first fawn of the season at my place last weekend while turkey hunting, and I have seen two little ones already hit by vehicles on the road. Be careful while driving, they seem to have the deer in the headlight look about them already.

Haven't seen a fawn yet, but several does acting strange lately.  Gonna put off bushhogging the fields for another week or two because of the wildlife bearing right now.
