    I had one of the doe bring her new fawn up into the yard yesterday, and the security camera caught it.

    If you're interested, I have a link to a video here:

    Momma, I want to Swing!

    My guess is she's learned it is safe to stay close to the house. She normally beds just across the road in view of the house. This is the second year I've seen her bring a fawn into the yard.

    Back when my wife and I first got married we lived right in town. We had a small field with a few trees in the middle behind our house that was surrounded by houses on three sides and a business on the fourth. Each of the three years we lived there, a doe raised two fawns there. They were never more than 50 yards from the house and you could see them at almost all times. They obviously felt safe there. It is amazing how adaptive they are.

    I used to have a big seed doe hatch out 2/3 fawns a year beside my shop, was neat to watch and gives great respect for the animal and mother instinct they have, neighbors wanting to cut the deer population down and she was on hit list, i
