    Just saw two right off the side of the road on my commute this afternoon. They were miles from one another so obviously different mommas. Probably just born today or last day or two. Keep an eye out for the little fellers!

    Last 2 days I've seen coyotes running thru people's yards in the middle of the day, couldn't get my rifle fast enough, take them out if you can.

    Wow, give or take a day or two for the around 200 day gestation period, that puts the does being bred in the middle of October.

    It happens for sure. Proof in the pudding I guess. In my area it seems dead as a door nail at thst time but nothing is a given.

    Yep. It was back a few years, you can find old threads on here, I was commenting on seeing a pretty good sized fawn on opening day of turkey season. The next weekend my dad saw a doe with two newborns. Those probably would have been bred in September!

    I normally start seeing Fawns, on my property, around the latter part of May or early June.

    That’s the most common time in this part of the country.

    Another reason I have decided not to mow my fields and left them fallow (more fawn cover)

    About a week ago I was still seeing a lot of fat does , now doe sightings are down I believe some are off dropping now..

    This is also the time of year the bunny huggers (thoes less in tuned with nature) start bringing in "orphaned" fawns

    I left the house at 0630 Saturday morning, and saw a doe and very young fawn cross the road in front of me. Fawn couldn’t have been 24-36 hours old.

    Consequently, some lady on our Neighborhood Facebook page is losing her mind because she saw a beagle chasing deer, then saw the same beagle bloodied off the side of the road and assumed it was a speeding car, which is a real issue in our neighborhood. I would normally let it go without commenting, but she insisted that a deer couldn’t possible have done that to a dog, because the other deer she sees don’t do that to her and her dog.

    It was an interesting conversation after that.
