    saw a tiny road kill fawn on I64 in Frankfort. I’ve seen house cats bigger than this little guy.

    This morning on the way to work, there was a doe pacing back and forth beside the road. She was in a cow pasture to my left, staring into a thicket to my right. Anytime I've seen them act like that, they've had a fawn or 2 nearby.

    I saw a fawn & Doe out in my back field, Wednesday evening. They stopped by one of my salt/mineral blocks before entering the woods.

    Unfortunately, already hit one with a bush hog. Just trying to clean up around the roads and avoiding the fields until mid July but there it was. Right next to the road. Seeing lots over the past week though.

    BOYS I missed one today. I walked a 15 ac field. Didn't find a Fawn. But going into the field drive a ran over one and killed it. MADE ME SICK. So now I guess going to have to walk EVERYTHING.

    considering a 200-205 day gestation timeframe you have breeding right around the 1st week of ky gun season. funny how that happens pretty much every year :D

    That just makes you feel sick all day. Been there, hate it. I'm holding off brush hogging for another month cause I don't want that feeling if I can help it but you can only do what your can do. Gotta farm.

    Already killed a couple with mower conditioner last couple days. Think the neighbor must have got one also saw a bunch of buzzards over his place today. Had a doe jump up in corner of field out of bed midday. Didn’t cut that corner figuring there was some fawns in there. Sure hate hitting those fawns.

    Should never mow between May 1 and July 1. Too much at stake: turkeys and deer.

    Too much at stake not to cut if you farm. If a person waited till July to cut hay all his hay crop would be of low quality plus yield would be way down. Also by waiting till then would risk not getting a good 2nd cutting.

    Very true, I'm all about wildlife conservation but you gotta make hay when the sunshine's, my cattle don't like eating snowballs in the winter time
