Little Fawn Picture

Saw this little deer on Saturday. It was probably about the size of a 3 month old lab. Probably one of the coolest things I've ever seen in the wild. Just doing what nature taught it too. For people who don't know, does will leave there fawns in fields alone. This is because fawns are born with no scent, but the doe has plenty to go around. This keeps predators from being able to find the baby by smell. The only time the doe comes back is to nurse. I'm not quite sure how long this goes on.[/img]

Very nice, you lucky dog.

Great pic man! :thumbsup:
In 1987, October, I had two small fawns (still spotted) come up to me in a hay field while I was going to my stand. I knelt down and they walked right up to me and sniffed my hand. The doe was near by and was going crazy pacing back and forth and calling to them. My buddy was with me and said it was the coolest thing he had ever scene. As for them still being very small and having spots, you're guess is as good as mine. Late born fawns? I have no idea, but it was pretty neat.
Hey, did you grab the blind bag with the shells when we left the truck?

That is a cool story HuntMQ1. I have seen a few fawns during early bow season that still had extremely faint spots.

My sister wanted to pet that fawn soooo bad. It was every thing I could do to get her to keep her hands off. I'm sure nothing would have happened but I didn't want to take any chances. You could have easily held that little deer in one hand though.

When I was in high school there was a fawn bellering in my dad's fenceline for two day's. Not knowing if the doe was coming back or not we thought we should resue this poor creature. Oh boy what a task, it was'nt very big and we were sneeking up on it, got within 10 feet of it, and it bolted like a streak of lighting, right toward's the highway. This is when were thinking oh crap it's going to get ran over, so we chase after it , it crosses the road to the neibor's cattle lot ( it was empty at the time) and we tried corraling it, finally we get it cornered, and are moving in on it, and bam it leap's right at us, my buddy got a chets full of little hooves, but he did manage to get a hold of it, and we took it back home and called the DNR to come get it. We figured the mother if it did come back would probaly leave it. They took it to an orphaned anmimals shelter. I coud not believe how fast they were at such a young age. We learned are lesson's though, now we just leave mother nature alone. After we thought about it some more we wish we never disturbed the little guy , I'm sure the doe was going to come back. It was definitely a learning experience
Any day in the outdoor's is better than at work

This little guy wasn't going anywhere to fast. When that picture was taken, my mom, my sister, and I were all standing within about three feet of it. I couldn't have been more than a week or two old.
